Ghana’s Employment Challenges (Proceedings, 2001)
Proceedings, Founder’s Week Celebrations, November 2001.
Effective tackling of Ghana’s alarming unemployment challenges has eluded governments to-date. Possible strategies for it continue to be debated in national discourse. Colossal youth unemployment and its general grave consequences for society at large and for the affected individuals remain a major concern. As recently witnessed in North Africa, governments ignore the challenge at their own peril.
This volume brings together papers, which were presented and examined at length at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences’ 2011 Founder’s Week Celebration. The papers provide insights and a sound basis for planning comprehensively to address the diverse features of the issue.
