Capturing ambiguities: Communal conflict management alternative in Ghana
MetadataShow full item record
The primary purpose of this paper is to propose an alternative land conflict management method for rural Ghana. The paper adopts the country's legislative and judicial decentralization programs as a framework for integrating aspects of the existing conflict management methods and skills of the national government and the country's ethnic groups. The paper argues that the continuing outbursts and protraction of land conflicts, particularly conflicts between host communities and migrant-farming groups, in Ghana demonstrate increasing ambiguities in the determination of land rights and the ineffectiveness of the existing land conflict management methods in the country. --WD
