The book is a detailed analysis of militarisation’s permeation and consolidation within Uganda’s economy. It details the loss of livelihoods, weakened civilian institutions, human rights violations, and widened patrimonial networks among other outcomes of deploying Uganda’s military to the country’s key development sectors such as fisheries, agriculture, land, and mineral resources. The book is the product of a collaboration between the Human Rights and Peace Centre (HURIPEC) at Makerere University and CRIC at the University of Copenhagen.

We look forward to sharing this special moment with you and hope you can join us for an evening of debate, conversation, and inspiration.
