Fragile Truths Podcast: Grounded Ligitimacy. Strengthening Local Land Registration in Conflict-Affected Northern Uganda

Although a key policy intervention for addressing conflict, land reform programs have complex implications for legitimacy of (inter)national and local actors. In this second episode of KPSRL & NWO-WOTRO's pilot podcast mini-series 'Fragile Truths', Sudi Suleiman (Policy Officer at the Dutch MFA) talks to David Betge (Senior Specialist Land Rights at ZOA) about his research project on this relationship, illustrated by the case of Northern Uganda. Are NGO and policy officers paying enough attention to how land reform interventions impact the perceived authority of local actors, or their own legitimacy? How can interventions be better attuned to this ‘unmeasured’ local impact?
