The Whetstone-Korsah Prize (Linda Whetstone & Arku Korsah Award for Emerging Leadership) is named for two great proponents of the free market and the rule of law in Africa and the World: Linda Whetstone, Board Chairperson of the London-based International Policy Network, and Sir Arku Korsah, West Africa’s first Black Chief Justice, whose unflinching support for judicial integrity led to a famous confrontation with Ghana’s socialist first President.
