Filippov V.R. Blaise Compaoré: exile from Olympus

Published in journal "Conflict Studies / nota bene", 2015-2 in rubric "Topical issues and vectors for modern conflict resolution studies development", pages 111-132.

Resume: The method of retrospective political reconstruction allowed the author to find out the causes of social and political crisis and the military coup that changed the political regime of Burkina Faso in October-November 2014. Emphasis is placed on clarifying the role of the French secret services, which in 1987 organized a coup in the country; the killing of legitimate President Thomas Sankara and brought Captain Blaise Compaore to power. It is considered the socio-political and economic causes of instability regime, which was also engineered by this odious politician, with the support of the Elysee Palace. The author evaluates the concept of changing the country's constitution and extending presidential the powers to a fiveyear term as a conflict factor that may provoke civil disobedience. He also investigates the reasons for undercover sets "Françafrique" to evacuate the toppled B. Compaoré in Côte d'Ivoire on October 31, 2014. The author analyzes the response of the international community and influential international structures to the military coup and the subsequent change of the form of government in Burkina Faso. It is concluded that the events of the end of last year marked the beginning of the collapse of the "Françafrique" neo-colonial empire.

Keywords: Blaise Compaore, Burkina Faso, France, "Françafrique", Africa, foreign policy, international relations, neo-colonialism, values, security
