LISTEN: Sam Hickey debates Uganda's capacity for development
ESID recently hosted a symposium in conjunction with Makerere University in Kampala to present our latest research findings from Uganda. Titled ‘Governing development in Uganda: Does Uganda have the capacity and commitment to meet the SDGs?’ the workshops were well received and generated a lot of good discussion.
Below we have audio of Professor Sam Hickey’s presentation, in which he discusses the impact of politics on development in Uganda, and whether the country’s performance is really as good as it seems. Following that, listen to a response from three local commentators: Dr Joseph Muvawala, Executive Director of the National Planning Authority; Prof. Josephine Ahikire, Dean of Women’s Studies, Makerere University; and Richard Ssewakiryanga, Director of the Uganda National NGO Forum.
