Abstract
Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda are countries that are in rich natural resources. The two resources which these states are the most economically reliant upon are that of arable land and minerals. It is these two resources which hold the most potential for these three states in terms of further economic growth. This makes it important for these two valuable resources to be afforded the best possible protection through the Double Tax Agreements (DTAs) that the three states have negotiated. This dissertation determined whether sufficient protection exists within the DTA networks of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda by analysing two important Articles that have a major impact on the ability of the “source State” to tax the exploitation of natural resources.
