Kathrin is a Master student of Anthropology at Aarhus University. She finished her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Geography at the University of Münster/ Germany, where she mainly concentrated on ethnic tourism and representations of southern African indigenous people within the Western travel discourse.
Her studies in Aarhus and the TrustLand project brought her interest to issues of land politics and land ownership in northern Uganda. Within the project, she will focus on the process of land titling, which is used as a political tool to mitigate land based conflicts. Kathrin will use case studies to analyse how property is being institutionalised and bureaucratised. She will examine the impact of land titling on people’s access to land, as well as historical factors on which people claim their access to land.
