Ghana: Developments and U.S. Relations

Ines Van Dyck (Editor)

Series: African Political, Economic, and Security Issues
BISAC: HIS001010

U.S.-Ghanaian relations are warm, as signaled by President Barack Obama’s travels in 2009 to Ghana, where he laid out his view on democratization and governance in Africa in his single major Africa-focused policy address. President Obama’s visit was premised on Ghana’s record of having built a relatively robust democracy and a growing economy, albeit in the face of widespread poverty and diverse development challenges, making it a stable country in an often unstable region. Ghana has also contributed to efforts to maintain stability and end conflict in the surrounding West Africa region, and regularly contributes to international peacekeeping operations elsewhere. It receives U.S. capacity-building assistance in this area, as well as aid to help counter threats posed by international narcotics trafficking. This book provides an overview of recent developments in Ghana and relations with the U.S., focusing on Ghana as an emergent oil producer; Ghana’s Global Health Initiative Strategy. (Imprint: Nova)
