Institute for Democratic Governance

IDEG

Accra, Ghana

The Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG) was established in the year 2000 purposely to contribute to the "establishment of a just and free society" in Ghana that is democratic, prosperous, integrated and secure in the West African sub-region and beyond. Established at a time of growing public interest in the advancement of democratisation and good governance in the hitherto authoritarian, turbulent, and underdeveloped polities of the West African sub-region, the founders of IDEG committed themselves to work for the consolidation of democratic governance within and beyond the boundaries of Ghana. Consequently, IDEG was conceptualised to function as the leading centre of excellence, delivering cutting edge services relevant to the empowerment of citizens and enhancement of their ability to sustain democratic governance and equitable development.
