Ghana is one of Africa's most stable and outward looking countries with well developed democratic structures. It has ratified most international human rights treaties and continues to work towards full implementation. The UK has some concerns, including continued use of child labour and the treatment of women and girls. We have raised these with the Government of Ghana, including alongside international partners at Ghana's Universal Periodic Review in November 2017.
Ghana is relatively peaceful and secure. The Government of Ghana remains concerned about recent terrorist attacks in several neighbouring countries. We have been working closely with the Government of Ghana to assist in their efforts to reduce the threat, including to the UK, from serious security challenges and reduce regional instability.
