About this event

Blended (online and face-to-face) seminar on securing political order in Ghana.

Ghana emerged as the first independent Sub-Saharan African state in 1957. The euphoria of the momentous event was short-lived when a military coup deposed its first president, Kwame Nkrumah, in 1966. The coup ushered in a long period of political instability in Ghana. Nevertheless, Ghana returned to democracy in the 1990s and has become one of Africa’s most developed democracies.

However, the West African region is increasingly facing political instability and multiple insurgencies. In addition, changing technology (especially internet penetration and social media) exposes Ghana’s democracy to possible harmful interference. Therefore, we pose the question, how could Ghana continue to secure its political development in times of changing demographics, technology, and its international environment?

If you are interested in this topic and wish to participate (as audience or present a paper) in the discussions, contact Dr Manu Lekunze, manu.lekunze@abdn.ac.uk

This workshop is organised as part of the Conversations on African Security Seminar Series at the Department of Politics and International Relations, the University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom.
