dc.description.abstract This report outlines administrative ways to harmonise state and traditional institutions in terms of land justice in Uganda. Customary justice within the traditional clan system in Uganda offers big advantages over the state judicial system in terms of physical access and costs. A significant weakness of the state justice system is the heavy backlog of land related cases in courts. Perception of and experiences of corruption in the state judicial system are rife. However, even in the current legal and institutional framework, much advantage could be taken of the benefits of the customary justice system. en
