Ghana, since March 6, 1957 when it became the first country south of the Sahara to gain independence from colonial rule has been at the forefront of international affairs.

Consequently, the country has produced hundreds of distinguished diplomats, international public servants, legal luminaries, finance experts and other professionals who have impacted global relations and politics.

Ghana, as one of the first participants in the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations in the Congo and subsequent role in conflict resolution and peacekeeping in Africa, has also produced many experts in the field.

The raison d’etre for the establishment of the Council On Foreign Relations-Ghana is to mobilize the rich and profound pool of Ghanaian experts in international relations, foreign policy and diplomacy.
