CARTOGRAPHIES DES VIOLENCES EN C.IV.

Plus que jamais, il faut trouver une solution à la crise post-electorale de Côte d’Ivoire. Même si Abidjan a connu une baisse sensible de ses morts, le pays continue d’être endeuillé avec l’expansion de la violence meurtrière au département de Duekoue. Avec les affrontements interethniques de la semaine dernière, ce département devient la zone la plus meurtrière quand on met en rapport le nombre de morts avec la population totale du département. Il est utile de rappeler que toutes les zones à violence meurtrière se trouvent dans les régions sous contrôle des forces loyales au président sortant Laurent Gbagbo. Enfin, les affrontements de Duekoue confirment nos analyses antérieures faisant du Grand Ouest la région qui pose le plus grand risque pour le maintien de la paix civil en Côte d’Ivoire.

More than ever, it is necessary to find a solution to the post-election crisis of the Ivory Coast. Even if Abidjan witnessed a significant fall in the number of its deaths, the country continues to be saddened with election-related deaths due to the expansion of fatal violence, now including the department of Duekoue. With the interethnic clashes of last week, this department has become the most lethal zone when one compares the ratio of the number of dead people to the total population of the department. It is useful to recall that so far all the zones with fatal violence are in the areas under control of the forces loyal to the outgoing president Laurent Gbagbo. Lastly, the confrontations of Duekoue confirm our earlier analyses that the Ivorian Greater West poses the greatest risk in the maintenance of social peace in the Ivory Coast.
