Crisis and Solutions: Côte d'Ivoire after Elections
Maître Bamba Affoussy, Spokeswoman for Forces Nouvelles; Representative, Rassemblement des Houphouétistes pour la Démocratie et la Paix
Chair: Alex Vines, Head, Africa Programme, and Research Director, Regional and Security Studies, Chatham House
The power struggle resulting from the disputed outcome of Côte d'Ivoire's November 2010 elections continues unabated and with no clear or easy solution in sight. As the political stand-off between incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo and elected President Alassane Ouattara remains unresolved, ordinary Ivoirians have suffered the consequences, and impacts of the impasse are increasingly being felt in the region and internationally.
The Africa Programme will host this expert discussion with a representative for Ouattara to discuss the post-election crisis, its impacts and prospects for a resolution.
Please note attendance is strictly by invitation only.
