The Representation of the Disadvantaged: Women, Youth and Ethnic Minorities

  • Fumihiko Saito


There are certain social groups which are more disadvantaged and vulnerable than others. In this chapter, the examples of women, the youth, and ethnic minorities in Uganda are discussed. The first section reviews gender disparities and how women relate to the LC system. The second part analyzes the relationship between youth and the NRM. In the third section, the issue of ethnic diversity and its implications for the LC system are examined. More emphasis is placed on gender than on age and ethnicity issues, partly because the NRM places significant emphasis on the role of women, which is clearly stated in the constitution as well.1 This research suggests that the decentralized state has a mixed impact on the formation of partnerships for respective disadvantaged groups.
