Rodney Nkrumah-Boateng

I live in the UK, where I practice law at IH Solicitors LLP in Stratford, East London. My areas of practice are immigration, family and civil litigation.
I have been in the UK for 17 years and grew up in Ghana, West Africa, where I studied French &  Political Science at the University of Ghana.
My interest and passion for African and international politics is rooted in this background, and in particular, I have followed the politics of my country very closely, even if from abroad. I have no doubt in my mind that Africa will only move forward if her sons and daughters, wherever they may be, commit to sound leadership, good governance and true respect for one another.
In 2007, I published a book entitled Ghana At 50: A Trip Down Memory Lane. In it, I sought to retrace the highlights of the nation’s journey through 50 years of independence from Britain.
I have just published my second book, Abrokyir Nkomo: Reflections of A Ghanaian Immigrant. In it, I share my thoughts on various issues and themes that are common to the Ghanaian (and by extension, the African) immigrant living abroad-in particular, Europe and North America.
The  book was launched in Ghana in May 2009, and I am pleased to say it is doing rather well. You can contact Rodney at
