Summary:
The rising fervor of nationalism in post-colonial Ghana culminated in hatred of foreigners and fear of alien control of economic enterprises. As a result of this growing anti-alien sentiment, all aliens without valid residence permits were expelled from Ghana in late 1969. The purpose of alien expulsion was to increase domestic employment by offering to Ghanaians the positions previously held by aliens. This thesis examines the economic logic of alien expulsion. Certain assumptions had to have been made in order for alien expulsion to increase domestic employment. Each of these assumptions is examined to see if it accurately depicted the conditions it described. The results of alien expulsion are then examined in light of the logic set up by this thesis.
