Ghana: One Decade of the Liberal State (2007)

Edited by Kwame Boafo-Arthur

Palgrave Macmillan

Ghana has witnessed a 'revolution through the ballot box', since its return to constitutional rule in 1993. Yet this period of sustained democratic government in an era of globalization and liberal triumphalism has brought with it new demands. How has Ghana faced up to the problems of institution-building, state-market relations and democratic leadership? Can it deal with the challenges posed by security, human rights and foreign policy in the 21st century? This unique collection examines these issues and assesses the future of the democratic experiment in one of sub-Saharan Africa's 'islands of peace'.
