Ivory Coast - Cote d'Ivoire

Another African country that has been constantly plagued by civil wars and instability. Ivory Coast had one of the bloodiest civil wars in recent memory. Peace was declared in 2003 and elections were held, this was a short period of stability and no war. Sadly the 2010 elections have caused much disruption and the country is on the verge of another civil war and more bloodshed.

Continent: Africa
Population: 20,600,000
HDI Rank: 163th
Neighbors: West - Guinea and Liberia, North - Mali and Burkina Faso, East - Ghana
