Democracy and Development Fellows

Our  Democracy and Development (D&D) Fellows program is designed to bring on board, short-term, (three months) to long-term (two years), scholars, researchers, consultants, and expert-practitioners, based in Ghana or in the diaspora, whose current work or sectoral area of interest, specialty, and expertise overlaps CDD-Ghana’s policy, research, and programmatic focus, and are interested in collaborating with CDD-Ghana to influence policy processes and outcomes through research and other common interests.

We currently have D&D Fellow positions in a range of research and policy fields, including health; education; urban governance; social protection; public financial management; public procurement; public corporate governance; natural resource governance; fiscal decentralization; public sector reform; gender and women’s empowerment; energy policy; public law and justice; party and campaign finance; youth policy; private sector development; technology and innovation; and sustainable agriculture and agri-business.
