From the introduction:

This chapter examines the female farmer’s organisation „Hope Development Initiative“ (HDI) and how it increases civil society in rural Uganda. In order to critically reflect on the inherent Western perspective, civil society in rural Uganda is explored in its evolution from traditional cultural values and its characteristics today are empirically assessed. Therefore, the analysis is guided by a twofold question:

  1. How is civil society in rural Uganda characterized?
  2. How does HDI create change at the local level?

In order to answer these questions and to empirically understand civil society in rural Uganda, a qualitative case study has been conducted as will be outlined in the research design. To begin, traditional and African literature on civil society will be introduced. The first question will be approached by addressing traditional concepts, forms of engagement and processes in rural areas. Subsequently, the second question will give an empirical example and highlight the context of HDI, its interactions and how it creates change. This is followed by academic and practical implications, before concluding and raising awareness for critical reflections and mutual learning opportunities. Even though the Western concept of civil society is often applied to Uganda, this chapter emphasizes that it is inadequate for understanding its dynamics.
