Abstract

A new hydroelectric dam under construction in northern Uganda has promised to promote the country’s socio-economic development, but effects on local communities are hard to reconcile with these aspirations. New research explores the reality of the government’s ‘modernisation’ programme and asks whether social securities are adequate to address the extent of disruption.
