Ghana is about to start producing oil commercially.

Amid great excitement, there is also legitimate cause for concern. Given the importance of economic diversification and the need to consolidate democratic institutions to avoid a resource curse, this paper analyses how well Ghana is poised to harness developmental benefit from new oil revenues.

SAIIA sincerely thanks those who acted as peer reviewers for these papers.
