2014. Author: William A. Awinador-Kanyirige, Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect

This policy brief looks at Ghana’s National Peace Council as an evolving best practice that could benefit the country as well as the ECOWAS and African Union agendas for peace and state capacity to protect civilians. The paper examines the origins, mandate and functions of the NPC and highlights the strategic role of non-state actors as key partners in the process of building peace infrastructure. On the basis of Ghana’s experience recommendations for further action are made to national, sub-regional, regional and global stakeholders.
