Accelerated Transformation in Tema: National and Global Narratives of Port Development in Ghana as Socio-technical Imaginaries

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

The Port of Tema in Ghana is a main entrepôt and investment hub, around which sociotechnical imaginaries of accelerated transformation crystalize. We focus on three dimensions/questions: A) TIME: How is the future of Tema imagined by different people drawing on what interpretations of Tema’s past and present? B) PLACE: How is the position of Tema imagined in relation to national, regional and global port networks? C) PUBLIC/PRIVATE: To what extent do public and private stakeholders (including global shipping agents) share imaginaries of Tema’s future and position in relation to technological transformation/acceleration? The study is a structured discourse analysis (based on Nvivo software) using publicly available sources mined from comprehensive databases including nexuslinus.
