Elections in a Hybrid Regime

Revisiting the 2011 Ugandan Polls

edited by Sandrine Perrot, Sabiti Makara, Jerome Lafargue, Marie-Aude Fouéré

How different were the 2011 elections? Did the political environment in the run-up to the elections restrict the capacity of political organisations to 'organise and express themselves'? Could the relative restriction of civil and political freedoms affect the pattern of voting and electoral outcomes? Do the election outcomes represent the people's view? To answer these questions, Elections in a Hybrid Regime: Revisiting the 2011 Ugandan Polls applies a multidisciplinary approach to conducting a multifaceted analysis of the 2011 elections in Uganda. Geographers, demographers, political scientists, and anthropologists contribute different in-depth political analyses, rather than partisan opinions or emotional reactions. The contributions assess Uganda's evolving electoral democracy and provides field-based insights into critical, often underappreciated, aspects of the electoral process. It is relevant for contemporary researchers, students, opinion leaders, international organisations, donors and policy practitioners in the fields of democracy and governance; comparative politics; political institutional building and African politics.
