Abstract:

In recent years, the news media has drawn increasing attention to a debate about the compatibility of certain religions with democracy. Islam, in particular, has been described by some as 'incompatible' with democracy. One reason for this belief comes from the notion that in Islamic countries, religious traditions, as opposed to secular, govern life. Another reason stems from debate over the status of women in Islam. In this guide you will explore whether there is a difference between the way Muslims and Christians in Ghana perceive democracy and democratic ideas.

The goal of this guide is to compare levels of support for democracy and democratic ideas among Christians and Muslims in Ghana. Crosstabulations and frequency tables will be used.
