ABSTRACT The study examined "an analysis of the !avo~ regarding the rights of children and women with disabilities in Uganda. People bear incredible po litical significance for states of asylum and states of ori gin. In the same way, protracted people caseloads operate as tangible evidence of sustained state negligence, violence, and responsibility. People are political, social and economic burdens to hosting states and can undermine the legitimacy of those in power in the state of origin. Children and women issues, as with other trans-sovereign issues, are managed through state cooperation and global governance mechanisms. The legal instruments and the bodies administering women protection are most heavily financed by and headquartered in developed/Northern/OECD states, whil e the absolute majority of people in states of asylum are in the northern part ofUganda. This thesis contributes to the investigation of how lack of oversight and legitimate veto points in women decision-making, together with disproportioned responsibilities and regional factors affecting states of asylum in Uganda, has allowed for international women Jaw to succumb to national interests and become increasingly instrumentalised by states to the detriment of women populations. The study fina lly advocates the responsible persons to improve on the living conditions of children and women with disabilities in the designated camps by ensuring that such persons are protected and the ir rights guaranteed. It should be the responsibility of the government of Uganda, International and Regional bodies and well as the rest of the world to ensure that the needs of these people are met. Uganda as a country is handicapped due to Jack of finances.
