This working paper analyses recent electricity sector reforms in Uganda. The empirical findings suggest that global best practice(s) are a problematic basis for promoting policy transfer. This finding has significance for debates regarding globalisation and its impact upon developing states, as these best practice(s) are increasingly a key element of international policy transfer, and thereby in the broader policy impact of globalisation. The paper first identifies the configuration of policies that constitute global best practice(s) in the electricity sector, and second evaluates the success of this policy agenda in the context of electricity sector reform processes in Uganda.
