Issues of access to land and realisation of land rights have always existed in Uganda as women are
considered to be potential land owners. Such rights usually have to do with the rights of individuals to
particular plots of land, but also with rights to land held collectively. The situation in post conflict
northern Uganda was brought about by the displacement of people from their villages, but it only
served to perpetuate this situation. The conflict in northern Uganda began in 1988 between the
government of Uganda and the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
