Idasa issues appeal on Ivory Coast

African democracy institute Idasa has urged the African Union, the United Nations, development agencies and think tanks to engage in a very honest appraisal by all parties of the transition processes currently in practice on the continent in the light of current events taking place in Ivory Coast. In particular, Idasa recognises the role of the African Union in determining African solutions to African problems, but calls for frank debate on its role and on clarifying the rules of engagement for international interventions in situations where the rights of self determination are superseded by the need to protect innocent civilians in conflicts between governments and their peoples.  Read the statement here and give your comments.
