Controlling Consent is a multi and cross-disciplinary anthology on Uganda’s 2016 Elections. The book brings together a group of Ugandan Researchers to provide a grounded analysis of the various dimensions of the elections and to reflect on the future governance and development implications of the franchise.
Such an examination is especially important given that 2016 marked only the 3rd election under a multi-party system of government since the National Resistance Movement (NRM) under President Yoweri Museveni assumed power in 1986. Thus Controlling Consent makes a critical contribution to the knowledge and understanding of Uganda’s governance and electoral processes and provides meaningful and extensive engagement with the country’s evolving framework of electoral democracy, both as a test of and reflector upon the wider process of political development in the country.
The book is edited by J. Oloka-Onyango, A Professor of Law, Makerere University and Senior Research Fellow, Center for Basic Research (CBR) and Josephine Ahikire, Associate Professor and Dean, School of Women and Gender Studies Makerere University, and Senior Research Fellow, Center for Basic Research.
The book will be launched on 6th December 2016.
