Abstract:This article examines the role of migrant associations in migrant integration and the negotiation of labour market conditions in Ghana. Drawing on a survey of literature on migrant associations, the article first examines the history of migration in Ghana and the emergence of migrant associations in the process. References are made to colonial times, but the discussions on migrant associations dwell on two main migration epochs: from independence to the late 1960s, and from 1990 to the present. Different types of migrant associations are discussed with a focus on how the associations help their members integrate into Ghana and also participate in the Ghanaian labour market.
