CDD-Ghana's Constitutional Review Project enters Research Phase
The study which is being conducted in the Ashanti, Greater Accra, Northern, Volta and Eastern Regions will interrogate the average Ghanaian’s opinion on the constitutional review process. A random sample of 1200 Ghanaians will be interviewed for the study.
The Constitutional Review Project is a two-year program funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF) to enhance transparency and accountability in the constitutional review process. The project aims, among other things, to measure public perception on various constitutional issues, as well as to provide public education and advocacy on governance reform.
The project seeks to address constitutional deficits in order to strengthen Ghana’s democracy and enhance transparency and accountability. The project will work towards this goal by measuring public perception on constitutional reform generally and in specific areas through targeted surveys. Furthermore, it will provide public education and advocacy on governance reform in key areas (through seminars, workshops, publications and media sensitization and training events). The project will also provide technical support for constitutional reform through the identification of necessary amendments and the provision of a blueprint or outline for reforming the Constitution within the next three years (by commissioning technical reports on the main areas for reform such as judicial independence, decentralization, election management, democratization of the security services etc.).
