Current Research

Democracy, Economic Growth and Inequality in sub-Saharan Africa: Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana

Research Details

The restoration of wholesale democratic praxis, the so-called Third Wave in Africa in the closing decades of the last century, coincided with significantly improved economic performance across the continent with several of the economies recording sustained growth rates some in double digits for up to a decade. Countries like Botswana, Cote D’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Mauritius and Ghana among others have recorded impressive growth rates while giants like South Africa and Nigeria have become incipient economic power houses; the former reckoned among the BRICS block and the latter lately tagged in the MINT group. However, the seemingly positive correlation between civil rule and economic growth has not resulted in shared prosperity and improved living conditions. The study attempts to investigate why improved economic performance in Africa has failed to translate into inclusive-growth and economic transformation in spite of stable democratic rule. Precisely it would explore the postulation that for Africa to achieve widespread poverty eradication and more equitable distribution of resources, a system that transcends political democracy and traditional growth-deterministic models is required; a new political economy that seeks to eliminate socio-political and class fissures by nurturing broad based growth coalitions in the policy process and in the political decisions of how to distribute growth proceeds. Methodology : The project will be designed as longitudinal studies and will employ mixed methods; a combination of statistical data from leading databases and primary data from direct interviews with identified stakeholders including policy makers, political elites and representatives of civil society groups including labour, women, students and private sector. The analysis will be based on ENVIVO for the qualitative data and the SPSS for the quantitative and ANOVA will be used for testing variance of the data.
