Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Dagbon Roadmap to Peace: Evaluating the Dagbon Peace Program
by Adam, Mohammed Habib, Psy.D., Ashford University, 2021, 197; 28322824
Abstract (Summary)

Eight stakeholders evaluated the Dagbon Peace Program, which was initially implemented in 2006 and then reimplemented in 2018 to end the protracted chieftaincy conflict between the members of the Abudu and Andani gates of the Dagbon royal family. Using a modified version of the Centers for Disease Control program-evaluation steps, data were collected from publicly available documents, answers to a survey-questionnaire, and transcripts of semistructured interviews. Based on factors that they had identified as indicators of program achievements, the stakeholders agreed that the program objectives were achieved and identified changes that could improve program outcomes. The results of the evaluation also revealed a lack of documentation of events and important proceedingsrelated to the Peace Program. Future research should consider collecting, collating, and documenting significant events and important proceedings. This applied doctoral project was unique in several ways as it was the first to use a program evaluation approach to study the Peace Program; to involve stakeholders in the evaluation rather than rely on systematic document reviews; to use both a quantitative and qualitative approach; and to include information about both the 2006 and the 2018 implementations of the Peace Program.
