Updates on my journey into the professionalism of the Ghana Armed Forces and peacekeeping Feb 05

With generous funding from the Institute of Global Leadership, I was able to travel to Ghana to research the professionalism of the Ghana Armed Forces and international peace support operations—which is for my capstone thesis and a requirement for my graduation from the Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy program at The Fletcher School-Tufts University. I arrived in Ghana on a warm night on the 27th December 2015. It had been over one and half years since I was in the country. As a Ghanaian, and having been away for graduate studies in the United States, it was a joyful moment to be back to the homeland. It was a moment when all the nostalgic pangs began to dissipate. The next day, I found myself at my favorite spot in Accra (the 37 Military Hospital bus terminal) reliving my favorite past habit and routine: drinking coconut water instead of just water.
