« L’étranger ne peut pas venir se cacher derrière une termitière et vouloir que sa tête la dépasse »

22 janvier, 2018

This report details the results of the participatory research on risks and opportunities for social cohesion in western Côte d’Ivoire. In particular, the research identified four obstacles to social cohesion in the regions of Guémon, Tonkpi and Cavally:

  • Beyond the broadly debated question of land tenure, the feeling of inequality regarding the economic opportunities of outsiders (allochtones/allogènes) versus those of locals (autochtones) seems to negatively impact peaceful cohabitation among the different communities in western Côte d’Ivoire;
  • Young people do not find opportunities for a better future in their local areas, leading to social despair and moreover to violence and/or migration;
  • Local chieftaincies face a crisis of legitimacy, because they are called into question by youths while also being subject to external power relations;
  • A decisive number of peace committees have ceased to exist due to the absence of a culture of civic engagement.

The results of this report will serve as a basis for the second phase of the current project, which aims to support the consolidation of sustainable frameworks of community gathering, building upon peace infrastructures and public authorities.
