National Integration in Uganda 1962-2013

by Apolo Robin Nsibambi

National Integration in Uganda 1962-2013 delves into the problems that have beset Uganda on the path to national integration and explores the prospects for consolidating this integration. The book reviews the process of incorporating three regions - Buganda, Karamoja and the Northern Region - into present-day Uganda, and examines the effects of this process. Besides ethno-cultural diversity, what impact has religious diversity had on this process? And what role has the language factor played? Is integration, in terms of territorial integrity, social cohesion and subordination to a central authority over the long term possible? The book offers insights that are crucial to the achievement of Uganda's dream of nationhood.
