Il fattore confessionale nel processo d’indipendenza dell’Uganda (1958-1969)

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


The case of Uganda, passed to independence in 1962, appears to be relevant to the efforts of Catholics to influence the political process for building a democratic regime. Unlike in Europe, where the Christian Democratic Movement, since the Second World War, had known a significant development with the formation of solid parties emerging outside ecclesiastical and confessional ambitions, in Uganda the attempt to form an indigenous leadership and to form a party "aconfessional" - the Democratic Party - inspired by the "International Dc" as a model of political participation, was overwhelmed by the authoritarian drift. Its epilogue showed the impossibility of the Democratic-Christian model and of a new relationship between religion and politics: the "aconfessional" character with which the Catholic party meant to increase consensus among elements of different confessions and ethnicities and contribute to a process of national unification, appeared too weak in a context of strong confessionalization of ethnic-political conflicts.
