The research aimed at investigating the extent of Land conflicts in Uganda, an examination on the policy and legal framework. It aimed at the exploration of the legal and institutional framework governing the land laws and how human rights are enforced and followed during land evictions in Uganda. It also expounds on the conflicts between the provisions of the Land Amendment Act and tenure system, the gaps between the exploitation of land tenure systems and other related laws in Uganda. Land tenure thus constitutes a web of intersecting interest, and these include; Overriding interests, overlapping interests: when several parties are allocated different rights to the same parcel of land, complementary interests: when different parties share the same interest. In the same parcel of land, competing interests: when different parties contest the same interest in the same parcel. And majorly land disputes arise from competing claims. This research was carried out in Uganda and it brings out the different literature related to human rights violations and how they should be preserved in relation to land law in Uganda. Finally, the report concludes and recommends to the various stakeholders on what's to be done and what needs to be implemented so that both women and children enjoy there right and freedom in relation to land matters.
