Abstract:

This study examines current politics in Cote dIvoire Ivory Coast and offers predictions for the post-Houphouet.Boigny era. The paper concludes that although the political institutions that Houphouet-Boigny bequeathed to the nation are weak, the Ivoirian elite both civilian and military has developed a sufficiently large stake in maintaining stability so as to preclude ethnic clashes that might seriously disrupt the status quo.
