Abstract

During 2020, residents of the West Nile sub-region of North West Uganda resisted government-imposed lockdowns and quarantine centres. As an alternative, traditional leaders and elders proposed local techniques for controlling disease outbreaks. Clement Aluma, Innocent Anguyo, Elizabeth Storer and Georgina Pearson (LSE) evaluate these claims, placing resistance in the context of state-distrust and histories of managing infectious diseases. The authors argue for a recognition of the multiple discourses through which political resistance unfolds at state borderlands.
