Abstract This paper explores the role of the family in nurturing the value of pluralism in Uganda. It presents a new and interesting perspective on pluralism in the knowledge program network. The authors research the significance of the family as “a space for nurturing the value of pluralism in Uganda”. They argue that there may be “good reasons to study the role of the family and the broader community when attempting to understand the meaning and the challenges of pluralism within African contexts, especially since collectivity may play a different role than assumed in the Western world, where many of the pluralism concepts originate”. The paper concludes that while the family remains an important point of reference, source of identity and space for nurturing values in Uganda, it is also evolving. New types of families emerge in which “participation, consultation, negotiation, equality and freedoms – principles that foster pluralism”, increasingly play a role.
