Enjeux économiques, conflits africaines et relations Internationales

  • Mamadou Koulibaly


Dealing with conflicts in Africa as problematic, this paper outlines four characteristics of conflicts in Africa: 1) that all African conflicts have economic stakes that are more or less obvious; 2) that all African conflicts are influenced by international and domestic geopolitics; 3)that African conflicts can be explained by political, economic and socio-cultural variables; and finally, that African conflicts are brought about by ill-organised , non free and fair elections.
