Abstract

While research has examined how primary caregiver imprisonment (i.e. the imprisonment of those who are mainly responsible for the care of children) can affect children and families in high income countries, little is known about how primary caregiver imprisonment can affect children and families in low income countries. This research sought to address this gap in our knowledge by examining if primary caregiver imprisonment can affect child and family outcomes in low income countries, as well as the achievement of the United Nations (2015a) Sustainable Development Goals. Using Uganda as an in-depth case study, this project investigated whether primary caregiver imprisonment influenced child poverty, health, wellbeing, education and family breakdown. It also sought to examine if primary caregiver imprisonment can impact on the achievement of the United Nations (2015a) Sustainable Development Goals in Uganda.
