The Council on Foreign Relations-Ghana (CFR), a non-governmental think tank on foreign policy and international relations, is to hold its maiden public lecture in Accra today.
An invitation letter signed in Accra by Vice President of the Council, Kabral Blay Amihere and copied Ghanaian Times said it would be on the theme “Does the retreat from multilateralism create new opportunities for the African continent.”
The lecture, which would be delivered by British politician and diplomat, Barones Valery Amos, is part of the Council’s distinguished guest lecture series.
The Council was inaugurated by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on February 26 this year.
He called on the members to act not only as facilitators in improving policy-making and its execution but also as agents of social change.
He said if effectively positioned and focused, think tanks such as the CFR could strike a formidable partnership with state and non-state actors to set and deepen the agenda of public discourse, as well as shape national, regional, continental and global conversations.
