GOOD MORNING GHANA!
Ghana is a country of 27 million inhabitants located in West Africa and it was the first in the sub-Saharan to gain its independence from the United Kingdom in 1957. Nowadays is one of the main actors for the Africa as a whole: the economy is growing despite a downturn in the recent years, the average education levels is pretty high and in 2015 has occupied the 25th position in the world for the press freedom according to the organization “Reporters without Border”. The absence of conflicts has overshadowed the media attention on the country but it represents an interesting exception in relation to the geopolitical context reference and it has always played a primary role in the recent history of the continent. The first president of Ghana, the legendary Kwame Nkrumah, was one of the most important African leaders of the 20th century and he has conceived and conveyed some pacifist doctrines that have positively guided the population for decades. In 1992 it has been introduced a new Constitution with the creation of the 4th Republic and since then, it has been a solid democratic institution confirmed by the alternation enshrined by the latest presidential elections of december 2016. However, the discrepancy between the dates and the reality is demonstrated by the constant growth of migration: Ghana is one of the africans countries most affected by the migration and even though most of the ghanaians emigrants remains inside the west Africa, a growing proportion is migrating outside the continent and the number of people who cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe via the asylum system is increasingly. 2017 is a fundamental year for its history, the presidential elections just held lead it to the threshold of the 60th anniversary of the independence and this is a pretext to investigate the present dynamics of a focal country for the entire continent.
