CDD/ODI * 4: The Role of Traditional Institutions in Political Change and Development

Asantehene-Otumfuo-Osei-Tutu-II

Among development practitioners, there is growing interest in the search for more ‘authentic’ and socially embedded civil society actors. Renewed interest is being shown in whether locally-based traditional institutions match this description, given their continuing importance in respect to local justice, land and community development activities. This paper looks at the role of traditional institutions, especially chiefs, in Ghanaian society and politics. It asks what kind of contribution they might make to the strengthening of civil society and to democratic demands for better government.
