Abstract:

"December 16, 2001: Madagascar. One of the world's poorest countries falls into chaos. the roots of this crisis are two men fighting to control disputed electoral results: Didier Ratsiraka, the incumbent president, and his foe, Marc Ravalomanana, the presidential challenger. For seven months one of the poorest countries in the world is asphyxiated by this turmoil: barricades are set up, tortures take place, and the crisis escalates into true civil war. The political calamity ends in late June with the official recognition of Marc Ravalomanana by the USA. Ratsiraka flees the country.
