Lecture: A Maturing African Democracy - Two-Party Government in Ghana


Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies, C103

This talk will focus on the role of the two major parties in the post-1992 elections in Ghana and how they represent the “big tents” whose trajectory was set at Ghana's founding. The discussion will include an analysis of election outcomes and personal survey data that support the contentions of an enduring two-party structure and democratic maturation.
