Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project examines the following question: "How have the transnational companies engaged in the gold-mining sector and the International Financial Institutions affected the autonomy of the Ghanaian government’s industrial policy making?". The project examines the power relations between the Ghanaian government, the International Financial Institutions and the transnational companies engaged in the gold mining sector in Ghana. The project concludes that overall the most powerful actors are the International Financial Institutions as they shape the framework in which Ghana is capable of making decisions and thus bargaining with the TNCs.
