2010 Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia Crisis Response Archive

> Return to List of Crises

The November 2010 elections in Côte d’Ivoire left two candidates disputing the outcome and vying for control of the country.  Violence ensued between the supporters of incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo and former prime minister Alassane Ouatarra, resulting in large numbers of displaced persons inside Côte d’Ivoire and refugees in Liberia.
