Feb 2015

Set against a backdrop of periodic violence, the Ebola epidemic, weak governance and complex local, national and regional antagonisms, this report documents the greatest sources of insecurity along the Ivorian-Liberian border. It presents the views of both the local border population and government officials working in the region and explores to what extent their explanations differ.

This report is based on a survey of over 200 people and a subsequent series of focus group discussions from four Ivorian-Liberian border region communities.
