The IEA has embarked on a programme that seeks to complement the work of the Constitution Review Commission (CRC).
The theme of the programme is ''Giving Voice to the Voiceless in Ghana’s Constitutional Review Process''. The programme is aimed at providing a platform for people at the grassroots to contribute and participate in the review exercise
Under the programme we have undertaken a number of activities.
Workshops held across the country to solicit the views of people at the grassroots. The target audience of the zonal workshops is women groups, disability groups, youth groups, faith-based groups, traditional and community leaders, civil society organizations, among others. This will provide such groups with an opportunity to directly voice their opinions on the Constitution Review process.
The Constitution Review Coalition
A coalition, made up of representatives of identifiable marginalized and vulnerable groups, was formed with the task of ensuring that the views and opinions of the constituencies they represent are captured. The coalition seeks to add value to the efforts of the CRC by trumpeting the voices of vulnerable groups in the exercise, strengthening the analysis and research basis of reform proposals, and developing a participatory review process.
The Constitution Review Survey
Constitutional Review Series
This is a series of roundtables and publications on key provisions in the Constitution. The Constitution Review Series is the culmination of the extensive research on proposed amendments. You can access copies of the Constitutional Review Series from our Publications page.
Capacity building for MPs
These workshops were designed to build the capacity of Members of Parliament (MPs) in areas requiring Constitutional reform. The workshops focus on the leadership of Parliament and the Parliamentary Committees on Constitutional, Legal & Parliamentary Affairs and Subsidiary Legislation.
