Week 1: Is tribalism the cause of our political problems in Ghana?

The recent protests in U.S. and around the world as a result of the sad murder of George Floyd has sparked a global discussion on different forms of discrimination regarding race, tribe, religion, age, sex and education. All forms of discrimination are a global problem, in particular, ‘political tribalism’ that remains alive and well in both the Global North and Global South. In Ghana for example, there is a structural political tribalism underlying police invitation in the recent past. We often see people who disagree with the ruling party on issues of national concern suffering from ‘selective invitation’ by the state. Moving forward and beyond election 2020, what we need is a systemic change to political tribalism to prevent a flame of revolution that may lead to chaos. This is exactly the aim of our discussion as far as the topic above is concerned.
