Ghana's Response to the Threat of Terrorism Requires Enhanced Interoperability

Research output: RDDC PublicationsCommissioned

As a stable country in an otherwise unstable region that has become a new frontier for global terrorism, Ghana’s ability to prevent and preempt radicalization and violent extremism is critical for both the national and the regional security. This brief stresses the urgent significance of enhancing Ghana’s response to the threat of terrorism. Based on interviews conducted with security officials and onethnographic data collection on counterterror policing, it is proposed that the process of operationalizing counterterror policy into practice should focus on improving inter-agency interoperability, particularly through joint training, and by strengthening mechanisms and motivations for intelligence sharing as a basis for intelligence-led policing.
