 UK Convention’s Flashback: Diaspora Panel: Know your rights as Ugandans in the Diaspora.

This is an interactive session which will focus on contentious issues pertaining to Ugandans in the Diaspora including:
• Voting rights
Owning Mailo land and how the new land policy will allow government to acquire land without prior compensation.
• Share experiences and exposure with other institutions on how to deliver effective, efficient and sustainable Parliamentary services to Ugandans in the Diaspora;
• To draw a clear road-map for delivering effective and efficient Parliamentary Services to Ugandans in the Diaspora.
• Reverse brain drain. How government is attracting its high skilled citizens in the Diaspora back to Uganda?

Ugandans in the Diaspora play an important role in the economic development of Uganda. Beyond their well-known role as senders of remittances, diasporas can also promote trade and foreign direct investment, create businesses and spur entrepreneurship, and transfer new knowledge and skills. Uganda is increasingly realizing that an engaged diaspora can be an asset — or even a counterweight to the emigration of skilled and talented migrants.
