ABSTRACT 

This study "Domestic Violence and Gender Relations in Contemporary Uganda', was canied out in FIDA (U) Kampala District, with specific aims of examining the circumstances which give rise to domestic violence and gender relations through assessing the legalities considered, establishing loopholes in the laws protection against domestic violence to identify circumstances under which the law can be revised and suggesting possible interventions which can be relied upon in the revision of the law. In comprehension of the study, the researcher reviewed literature from various scholars on the major variables as well as different laws from different countries that control domestic violence and gender related issues. Domestic violence is very common in families in front and behind the rails, despite the legal measures taken. This brings about a growing recognition that it is not easy to reach full potential if women are denied the chances to fully participate in different spheres in the society and women's participation has become key in all social development programmes, be they enviromnental, for poverty alleviation, or for good governance. The study recommended; advocacy through media, sensitizing men to drop habit of violence, increasing access to justice, empowering women at all levels to strengthen individual capacities and decrease vulnerabilities to violence, changing underlying cultural values of society, statutory life interest to wives, and preparation of bills to enact health and safety standards to protect women.
