Exploring Worldwide Democratic Innovations – A case study of Ghana

This case study on Ghana puts political parties under investigative lens, exploring how the country’s two main political parties have risen to prominence by innovating their structures.

The most impactful innovation has been taking place at the heart of political institutions, through the decentralisation of political parties and their rejuvenation through incorporating grassroots voices into the party structure. Much of Ghana’s thriving democracy is rooted in its active citizenship and democratic debate that happens on the background of an animated political party membership.

The “Exploring Worldwide Democratic Innovations” project was supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

This case study was written by Jasper Abembia Ayelazuno and Hardi Shahadu.
