FILM: Cote d’Ivoire: In Search of Stability | IRIN Africa

IRIN Films is pleased to announce the release of Côte d’Ivoire: In Search of Stability, the latest in a series of “primer” documentaries which, through interviews with experts and officials, outlines key issues and challenges faced by various countries.

For much of its post-independence history, Côte d’Ivoire was beacon of stability and an economic powerhouse in West Africa. But a coup d’état in 1999 was followed by more than a decade of political turmoil and sporadic armed conflict. An army mutiny in 2002 grew into a full-scale insurrection and the division of the country into the rebel-held north and the south controlled by the government of then President Laurent Gbagbo.
