In addition to the publication of our research work and articles and analysis in major national newspapers, we will bring out a period journal, the DI Quarterly, which will be a powerful medium for the public advocacy of our philosophy. Combining academic articles with more topical pieces, our in-house journal is intended to act as a stimulant for debate, providing serious, substantive research and analysis in an accessible and interesting manner. We also anticipate that it will also prove an influential force in shaping political discourse.
DI Quarterly June 2009
The inaugural edition of the DI Quarterly is planned for June 2009. The June edition will feature a number of articles based on presentations delivered at our symposium on the first hundred days of the new Presidency in April.
DI Quarterly September 2009, focusing on Decentralisation
September’s DI Quarterly will bring together our own work on decentralisation (see above) with articles from noted academics and experts in this field to provide a challenging and comprehensive look at the major issues surrounding decentralisation in Ghana today.
DI Quarterly December 2009, focusing on Biometric Voting
Coinciding with the culmination of the DI’s Biometric Voting project and our symposium, to be held on 7 December (see below), this special edition of the DI Quarterly will focus on various aspects of the biometric, electronic system, examining both its application elsewhere and its suitability for Ghana. Furthermore, potential supplementary benefits – for example in policing and social service administration – will be explored, providing a bold and imaginative vision for the way in which biometrics, more widely applied, can transform the governance of Ghana.
