Ghana's Public Interest and Accountability Committee: an elusive quest for ‘home-grown’ transformation in the oil industry

Access article hereThe centrepiece of this paper is Ghana’s Public Interest and Accountability Committee with empirical details of its politics of institutional choice and outcomes. The Committee is hailed as a model of ‘bottom-up’ reform and one of the principal reasons why Ghana is likely to circumvent a ‘resource curse’ situation associated with its petroleum resources.

It draws attention to the limitations of technocratic administrative fixes imposed by in-country and sectoral dynamics.
