Côte d’Ivoire’s Presidential Elections 2020 – A Turning Point for Peace and Politics?

12 March 2019 15:00–16:30

Chatham House Chatham House, London

Address: 10 St James's Square, St. James's, London SW1Y 4LE

Although its economic recovery continues, the political and security context in Côte d’Ivoire remains fragile following violent disputes over the 2018 municipal elections.

In the wake of the International Criminal Court’s recent acquittal of former President Laurent Ggagbo, there are concerns that scheduled presidential elections in 2020 could spark a resurgence of violence and instability – particularly if Ggagbo returns to contest the polls.

At this event, co-hosted by the Institute of Development Studies and the Chatham House Africa Programme, experts come together to assess the outlook for Côte d’Ivoire’s political and societal stability, and discuss how action at domestic and international levels can support peaceful and inclusive development in the country.

Chair: Dr Jeremy Allouche, Research Fellow, Institute of Development Studies
