it also explores points of convergence, asking whether this issue can be reframed as a solution to a common problem.

The focus of this research is the border region between Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia. The protracted violence which has affected the region for many years stems from the internal conflicts which afflicted both countries at different times, and which had regional dynamics and implications.
