bm109 Ivory Coast, The Forgotten Struggle

Once hailed by some as the economic miracle of west Africa, Ivory Coast has been in a tailspin of political instability, economic dowturn, and de-facto civil war for the past 5 years. Now the clock is ticking, while the UN and France stand guard, for a new peace agreement to take shape and the road to recovery to begin. International journalist Pauline Bax joins me direct from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, to discuss what is happenning there, how it got to this point, and what might happen next.
