    Abstract

    Much has been written, especially the last five years, about the alleged wave of democracy in Africa. However, the focus has usually been on rather narrow institutional questions such as introduction of multi-party elections, and analyses have in general focused on national politics as played out in the capitals.
    In my dissertation I propose to change that focus. Partly by paying particular attention to rural politics, partly through a discussion of democracy in a longer-term perspective using a broader definition of democracy and finally through a discussion of democracy as effective political participation rather than only form
    al rights. I shall do so by analysing the Resistance Councils (RCs) in Uganda.
