Filippov V.R., Dzhunusbaev S.M. The Ivory coast crisis of 2010-2011: actual and virtual reasons

Published in journal "Conflict Studies / nota bene", 2016-1 in rubric "Domestic political conflicts", pages 35-51.

Resume: Using the method of historical reconstruction, the authors show the latent causes of the armed conflict between the Muslim north and Christian south in the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire in 2010-2011. A comprehensive analysis of a wide range of sources (media materials, judicial and journalistic investigations, evidence of well-known politicians and diplomats) can justify the view that describing this conflict as "ethnic" does not have sufficient grounds. Researchers propose to consider the situation in Côte d'Ivoire as a socio-economic conflict between the conditional-indigenous population of the country, rooted migrants and migrants decades as the conflict between citizens and non-citizens about the ownership of the means of production, in particular, and about civil rights, which should ensure equal access to economic resources and the resources of power. The methodological basis of this study includes the systemic, structural-functional, comparative-political approaches, the methods of analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction, observation. The accent of the article is made on clarifying the role of France in the outbreak of civil war in the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire in the context of the policy of "françafrique." The conclusion that the Fifth Republic has inspired and has long supported the Ivorian opposition in order to maintain economic and political preferences of Paris in this strategically important region.
