Abstract:The three contributions in this publication explore different perspectives on the complex roots of civil war in Côte d'Ivoire. The first contribution, The political implications of economic adjustment: crisis, reform and political breakdown in Côte d'Ivoire, by Guro Ålmas, examines the ramifications of the economic trigger for the eruption of civil war in 2002. The second contribution, New war - old peace: about the descent into civil war in Côte d'Ivoire and its absence in Ghana, by Volker Riehl, deploys a comparative perspective in providing explanations for why neighbouring countries with broadly similar historical characteristics and socioeconomic conditions ended up responding differently to internal tensions. It argues that types of governance which promote the integration of marginalized groups and equal citizenship are more likely to lead to sustainable conflict resolution. In the third contribution, Reconfiguring nationhood in Côte d'Ivoire?, Henri-Michel Yéré provides a historical perspective to the citizenship and nationhood questions that are embedded in the roots of the Ivorian civil war.
