Erneute Eskalation im Südsudan

Bleibt der Frieden eine Illusion?

Der jüngste Staat der Welt wurde am 9. Juli 2016 fünf Jahre alt. Doch die Feiern fielen aus. Stattdessen eskalierte erneut die Gewalt und forderte hunderte Todesopfer. Auch wenn vorläufig wieder Ruhe eingekehrt ist - ein eilig ausgerufener Waffenstillstand scheint zunächst zu halten - so wird doch deutlich, wie schwierig die Lage im Südsudan bleibt und wie unzureichend die Umsetzung des Friedensabkommens vom August 2015 vorangeschritten ist.

Why should a country arguably devoid of most of the integration principles like stability, human rights, rule of law and good governance be accepted into the community?

Während es am Wahltag im Großen und Ganzen ruhig blieb und sich die weit verbreitete Furcht vor Gewalt rund um die Wahlen nicht bestätigte, kritisierten ugandische und internationale Beobachter erhebliche Unregelmäßigkeiten beim Ablauf der Wahlen und stellten die Kompetenz und Unabhängigkeit der Wahlkommission in Frage.

Regierung und Opposition im Wahlkampf

Am 18. Februar finden in Uganda Parlaments- und Präsidentschaftswahlen statt. Auf den letzten Metern steigt die Spannung. Während die Kandidaten der Opposition ihre Botschaft des Wandels verbreiten und versuchen landesweit Unterstützung zu mobilisieren,lässt die Regierung ihrerseits keine Zweifel aufkommen, dass sie von einem Wahlsieg überzeugt ist. Der Wahlkampf hat bisher für Uganda ungewohnte Dynamiken entwickelt - auch weil zum ersten Mal drei starke Kandidaten im Rennen sind.

Tagging, Tweeting, Posting: Social Media and Politics in Uganda

The Impact of Social Media on the Run-up to the 2016 Elections in Uganda

While in Uganda still only a relatively small percentage of the population has access to social media, its importance in political communication and activism cannot be overestimated. Due to the power that manifests itself in hashtags, posts, and images, the Ugandan political elites on the one hand learned to use social media for their political goals and campaigning. On the other hand, however, there are also calls for regulation as social media can be just as uncomfortable as it can be useful. This country report takes stock and analyses the impact social media has on the electoral process.
