As a subject, Ghanaian environmental Law has been influenced by Ghana's participation in several treaty arrangements aimed at addressing contemporary international challenges such as climate change, marine pollution and conservation of biodiversity. The approach adopted in this book is to ascertain the extent to which Ghanaian environmental jurisprudence has been influenced by Ghana's participation in the various fora or treaty arrangements on the subject. In that regard, using examples from the marine environment, wetlands and biotechnology, an attempt is made to provide an insight into Ghanaian implementation of treaty norms and draws lessons for legislators and policymakers. The book has been structured to deal with basic doctrinal issues such as the nature, sources and development of Environmental Law; as well as other core aspects of the subject such as environmental justice. The role of regulatory bodies in environmental management and protection and the regulatory frameworks for the conservation, management and utilisation of natural resources are also discussed.

Since the dawn of the twenty-first century, at least twelve international arbitration claims have been submitted against the Government of Ghana (GoG). This is a significant number compared with what had previously been the case. To date, there has been little or no academic study involving the claims, the arbitral awards resulting from them, and their implications for Ghana. This book aims to fill that void. It examines GoG's experiences with international arbitration. It draws on lessons from those experiences, as well as the comparative insights extrapolated from other jurisdictions. The book focuses on arbitration between GoG and private foreign individuals, firms or corporations. It does not deal with interstate arbitration. The book examines: the nature of international arbitration the writings of Ghanaian scholars on international arbitration, the legal regimes and contractual mechanisms that make GoG amenable to international arbitration as a method of settling disputes between it and private foreign individuals, firms or corporations, the record of actual international arbitration claims that have been brought against GoG, and the awards that have resulted from such claims the reception and treatment of Ghanaian law as the applicable law in international arbitration claims the extent to which Ghana has implemented its international obligations with respect to international arbitration and, the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards against GoG within and outside Ghana.

Winner of the James Harvey Robinson Prize from the American Historical Association, and widely acclaimed by educators and students, Abina and the Important Men, 2e is a compelling and powerfully illustrated "graphic history" based on an 1876 court transcript of a West African woman named Abina, who was wrongfully enslaved and took her case to court. The book is a microhistory that does much more than simply depict an event in the past; it uses the power of illustration to convey important themes in world history and to reveal the processes by which history is made. The story of Abina Mansah-a woman "without history" who was wrongfully enslaved, escaped to British-controlled territory, and then took her former master to court-takes place in the complex world of the Gold Coast at the onset of late nineteenth-century colonialism. Slavery becomes a contested ground, as cultural practices collide with an emerging wage economy and British officials turn a blind eye to the presence of underpaid domestic workers in the households of African merchants. The main scenes of the story take place in the courtroom, where Abina strives to convince a series of "important men"-a British judge, two Euro-African attorneys, a wealthy African country "gentleman, " and a jury of local leaders-that her rights matter. "Am I free?" Abina inquires. Throughout both the court case and the flashbacks that dramatically depict her life in servitude, these men strive to "silence" Abina and to impose their own understandings and meanings upon her. The story seems to conclude with the short-term success of the "important men, " as Abina loses her case. But it doesn't end there: Abina is eventually redeemed. Her testimony is uncovered in the dusty archives by Trevor Getz and, through Liz Clarke's illustrations, becomes a graphic history read by people around the world. In this way, the reader takes an active part in the story along with the illustrator, the author, and Abina herself. Following the graphic history in Part I, Parts II-V provide detailed historical context for the story, a reading guide that reconstructs and deconstructs the methods used to interpret the story, and strategies for using Abina in various classroom settings. This edition adds crucial value to Abina's story and the reader's experience. These include: - new, additional testimony uncovered in the National Archives of Ghana - a gender-rich section in Part V that explores the Abina's life and narrative as a woman, focusing on such important themes as the relationship between slavery and gender in pre-colonial Akan society, the role of marriage in Abina's experience and motives, colonial paternalism, and the meaning of cloth and beads in her story. - a forum on the question of whether Abina was a slave with contributions by three senior scholars working from different perspectives: Sandra Greene, Antoinette Burton, and Kwasi Konadu .

The book is intended to be a contribution to comparative knowledge on what a final and constitutional court's role and significance are to governance in a developing country. It provides a recently retired judge's insights into the substantive work and function of the Supreme Court in Ghanaian society and Ghana's legal and political system. The book throws light on the role played by the Supreme Court in the development of Ghanaian law and the laying of the foundation for Ghana's constitutional democracy. The establishment of a constitutional democracy in Ghana has been an important factor in the nation's development and the Supreme Court has had an important role to play in this process. It will also be invaluable to both academic and practising lawyers, as well as at non-lawyers interested in the function and operations of the Supreme Court. The study of the Supreme Courts of emerging democracies should be given some emphasis in comparative law. It is hoped that the material contained in this book will contribute to the facilitation of such emphasis.
