Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Early Warning Analysis in Côte d'Ivoire and Kenya
by Crayne, Michael, M.A., The American University of Paris (France), 2010, 70; 10305776
Abstract (Summary)

What is early warning and how does it work? Could the conflict in Côte d’Ivoire have been prevented? How and When? Why could Kenya be going down the same road and what are the tools in place to prevent it? This thesis attempts to address these questions in sequential manner, starting by the analysis of conflict prevention, why crisis is the essential moment to avoid and how early warning is the tool to use to give the analyst visibility on the current situation of any given nation.

The work examines the factors that brought Côte d’Ivoire beyond the brink into civil war, and the current instability that leads the interested observer to believe Kenya developed a crisis in 2007 and may not be tackling all of its issues in order to pull itself out. The effort is concluded by looking at the necessity for more action and more efficiency in advocating for early warning.
