Political Economy Analysis of the Gender Equality Legislative Landscape in Uganda

The paper examines the contextual and institutional factors affecting positive change in gender relations in Uganda and proposes entry points that can be leveraged to propagate a pro-gender equality legislative landscape in Uganda. The paper undertakes a political economy analysis of Uganda’s gender equality legislative landscape by: first, analysing the contextual and institutional variables that have produced structural inequalities in relation to access to rights, voice and opportunity among various social groups and that account for the current nature of unequal power relations among these groups; and second, it identifies the key state and non-state actors influencing the gender equality legislative debate in Uganda with the aim of identifying their interests, incentives and decision logics, particularly pointing out why such actors would either support or block certain positions within the gender equality legislative debate.
