Ghana: Transition to Democracy

Summary of Book , 1998

To tease out the unique processes that may strengthen and sustain Ghana’s transition to democracy in 1993, the authors in this book question and analyse Ghana’s democratization process and the numerous transitions undergone by the country. The authors do well to identify and discuss the relationships that exist between varying factors such as the structural adjustments programme, civic association and political parties, Ghana’s military and security establishments, state organizations, the international community, press freedom, multi-party election and elite consensus and how they can affect the likelihood of a sustained democratic transition in Ghana.
