Successful PhD defence by Dennis Penu

Regional reorganisation, communal context and conflicts in Ghana
PhD defence Dennis Penu

On 16 August, Dennis Penu successfully defended his PhD thesis looking at the social conflict outcomes of the 2018 regional reorganization in Ghana.

In his defence, Penu focused on a referendum held in 2018 which mandated the creation of six new subnational regions. He noted that the referendum process unfolded in either conflict or cooperation, with campaigns in some areas progressing without incident but violent clashes in others.

Penu investigated this contrast in his thesis, basing his analysis on the social, political, cultural and economic content of Ghanaian society.
