Early Signs of Violent Extremism in Côte d’Ivoire’s Northern Border Areas

We have taken a historical ap- proach to the study, structuring it around testimonies and accounts from communities. This study aims to identify the early signs of attacks in communities that are harboring or have harbored active violent ex- tremist organizations (VEOs). We have sought to gain a clear under- standing of the issue to strategically guide the actions of the government and the Resilience for Peace project (R4P). We believe that by identifying these early signs in other commu- nities, appropriate preventative measures can be taken.
This study is a qualitative sur- vey based on individual and focus group interviews with the com- munities and other local actors in Téhini, Zèpou, Tougbo, Môrô-Môrô, Bolé (Bounkani region) and Kafolo (Tchologo region), communities in the Ivoirian north bordering Burki- na Faso. The surveys were conduct- ed from September 27 to October 7, 2022.
The main results of this study are set out in the executive summary.
