Country Analysis: Leadership in Advancing Women’s Rights in Public Decision-Making Pocesses in Uganda
The Robert Bosch Stiftung commissioned a study in Uganda to take a closer look at which conditions need to be in place to advance women’s rights in public policy decision-making processes. The findings from the study show that women leaders in public policy making and implementation processes face several challenges that hinder advancement and promotion of women’s rights. The challenges are at a personal level, others are structural, procedural and funding. There is therefore need for a multi-dimensional approach, which takes cognizance of the proposed recommendations and diverse needs and interests of women in the given context. The process will bring several players into focus to dismantle the underlying manifestations of patriarchy at all levels.
