After several decades of conflict, warfare and forced mass encampment, people in northern Uganda resettling in their communities face pressures to sell their lands to eager potential buyers and decisions about whether to accept private land titling as a form of ostensible security. The chapter explores cases of contested property rights and disputed land sales from Acholi and Karamoja regions. It discusses the dilemmas of land tenure in Northern Uganda: Is land an individual or collective asset; should it be vested in kinship relations and acquired through inheritance, or commodified and acquired through purchase?
