An Analysis of the Implementation of the African Peer Review Mechanism in Ghana, Kenya and Mauritius

"This paper examines the implementation of African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) in Ghana, Kenya and Mauritius. First to voluntarily submit to review by the APRM, all three countries have devised different working models at the national level in order to facilitate the peer review process. This paper examines the background to the emergence of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and the unique role that the APRM has played as a vital part of NEPAD’s delivery system since its inception in 2002. It goes on to examine the working models of the selected case studies, and a comparative analysis of their various structures and working methods is discussed. The paper concludes with a summary of the mechanism’s progress to date and discusses what lies ahead for the APRM."
