E-Commerce is growing in an exponential way. Many people are engaged in it from various perspectives. It is informing patterns of trade not just within the domestic market but across borders. The attendant challenges such as goods not meeting the standard; cancellation, refund and return policy not being implemented; privacy and security of data; cyber crimes and fraud; delay in delivery; and dispute resolution are very critical in unpacking the would-be gains from E-commerce. The government of Uganda puts in place a regulatory framework to address these challenges. This book examines the adequacy of the legal framework in effectively responding to the challenges so as to make E-Commerce contribute to the economic development of the Country.

This book explores the extent to which the International Criminal Court (ICC) has influenced peace processes in Cote d´Ivoire, Kenya and Uganda. It examines how the prosecution of those who bear the greatest responsibility for crimes committed in these countries may have negatively or positively influenced the process of making peace in their wake. It is concerned with how international accountability affects post-conflict countries and what the ICC brings to peace processes. The central question addressed by the book is whether justice spurs peace in post- conflict societies or whether justice complicates the peace process. If so, how? Relying on qualitative studies in these countries, this book comparatively analyses the impact of the interventions of the ICC in Uganda (2004), Kenya (after the 2007/2008 post-election violence), and Cote d´Ivoire. Its aim is to provide an evidence-based account of how the involvement of the ICC in these countries influences the processes of promoting peace. To gauge this, Malu develops an analytical framework which is based on four variables: deterrence, victims´ rights, reconciliation and accountability to the law. This book will appeal to those interested in post-conflict reconstruction, transitional justice, peace studies, conflict transformation, and international criminal law, including peace practitioners and those working in the field of international justice.
When scriptwriter Jane Bussmann ( South Park, The Fast Show, Brass Eye and Smack the Pony ) moved to Hollywood, it was supposed to be the start of something better. But a day job interviewing Paris, Britney and Co. left her trapped in the Golden Age of Stupid. Then she saw a photograph of John Prendergast in Vanity Fair . His day job was ending war. He was also extremely attractive. Jane ´may have inferred she was a Foreign Correspondent´, because suddenly she found herself on route to Africa on the trail of this modern-day Indiana Jones. There was one problem: when she got to Uganda John had left. Alone in a war-torn country, appalled by 25,000 child abductions, Jane must investigate the war crime of the century - to make John fancy her. Combining a maverick heroine, an idealist hero, comic disasters and moving tragedy, this is brilliant storytelling by a hugely talented writer. ´Jane Bussmann´s romantic odyssey from Hollywood to Uganda is the funniest thing we´ve ever read.´ Instyle Hot List ´a marvellously maverick approach to the investigation of war crimes.´ Marie Claire Five Stars ´Imagine The Last King of Scotland written by Shazzer from Bridget Jones´s Diary , and you´d still only get halfway to appreciating Jane Bussmann´s funny, incongruous and artlessly perceptive account... this is one of the funniest books I´ve read for a long while´ The Sunday Times ´hilarious and heart-wrenching´ The Spectator
