Parliament



Ghana established democracy in 1993 and is considered as very stable with regards to its state structures and democratic performance. Ghana is seen by external experts as a role model for the democratisation process on the African continent, but nevertheless has severe governance challenges which have to be addressed in future.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung has intensively worked together with the Ghanaian Parliament in the past to explore different topics with selected sub-committees of parliament. We aim to provide expertise for the revision and discussion of drafted bills as well as to support the formulation of amendments if needed.

We do believe that parliamentary work can be enriched through the expertise of civil society organisations which can act as an information pool for parliamentarians. Therefore, we give the possibilities for dialogues on various topics and with various stakeholders.
