Abstract:This article analyses the marginalization of customary land rights in Acholiland, northern Uganda. It discusses how violent conflict and its aftermath has weakened the customary land tenure system. It then shows how government policy has exacerbated this trend. It concludes by stressing the continued social relevance of the customary land tenure system in Acholiland, and argues for its protection. Notes, ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
