The State of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in Uganda and Emerging Issues: A Joint Submission to the United Nations Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Uganda
This report was developed after a national consultation of civil society organisations working on economic, social and cultural rights issues in Uganda. A number of civil society groups, both national and regional convened to discuss priority economic, social and cultural rights issues to be addressed during the UPR. The organisations worked in thematic groups based on their area of expertise to identify issues and generate reports on specific rights. Key issues and recommendations from those reports were collated into this report by the Initiative for Social Economic Rights (ISER) under the auspices of the Coalition on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. This report relies on government statistics but also on primary data collected by organisations that are signatories to this report.
