Editors: Obeng, Samuel Gyasi and Hartford, Beverly (Indiana University)
Book Description:
This book addresses important issues to the democratization and development initiatives of developing countries. In many former colonies, the government remains centralized, and many in the population are unable to fully participate in its functioning. A critical difference between being a subject and a citizen is the ability to partake in governance. Such involvement requires knowledge, literacy, and the availability of literature in local and national languages. This book challenges policy makers and scholars to find creative ways of fostering political empowerment through developing language programs.
