In this paper the main questions are:• How do local cluster governance and global chain governance interact under the gradual process of liberalisation of the cocoa sector in Ghana?
• How does this affect the nature of upgrading and the effectiveness of upgrading strategies that small-scale cocoa farmers follow? And
• Which (new) actors and institutions have played a role in upgrading (networks)?
