Basics on Politics

One of the goals of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is to consolidate democracy in Ghana. To achieve this long-term goal, it is important to build the capacities of all public office holders and to have well-informed citizens. The key ingredient to realise this goal is education on roles, rights and responsibilities of every Ghanaian.

Ghana's political structure and procedures appear to be a complex matter. Legal texts, such as the Constitution, are not so reader-friendly and difficult to understand. To allow all people in Ghana to understand the processes and find ways of influencing this, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung published several readers and brochures on basics of Ghanaian politics.
