Anuario 2011 de procesos de paz

En esta sexta edición del Anuario de Procesos de Paz se analizan los conflictos en los que se llevan a cabo negociaciones para llegar a un acuerdo de paz, con independencia de que estas negociaciones estén formalizadas, se encuentren en fase exploratoria, transcurran satisfactoriamente o, por el contrario, se encuentren estancadas o en plena crisis. También se analizan algunos casos donde las negociaciones o exploraciones son parciales, es decir, que no abarcan la totalidad de los grupos armados presentes en un país (caso de la India, por ejemplo).

Don't Forget Africa's Other Displacement Crisis, Says IOM

With more than 129,500 people now displaced within and across the borders of Cote d'Ivoire and the situation worsening on a daily basis, IOM is calling on the international community not to forget Africa's other displacement crisis.

Renewed fighting in western Cote d'Ivoire and in Abidjan itself has led to an estimated 50,000 people now displaced in Danane, Duekoue and Man. At least 20,000 estimated people have been forcibly displaced in Abidjan following clashes late last week. IOM, UNHCR and other partners are trying to further assess levels of displacement

Report
Voice of America

Health: Billions lack access to life-saving surgery

Report
IRIN
BANGKOK, 21 February 2011 (IRIN) - More than two billion people, mostly in low-income countries, lack adequate access to life-saving surgical procedures, which is a potential obstacle to achieving health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), say specialists.

"It is not news that the poor have worse access to hospital services like surgery. But the size of the population is a shock," said Atul Gawande, associate professor at Harvard School of Public Health and head of the World Health Organization (WHO) initiative, Safe Surgery Saves Lives.

Tandis que Laurent Gbagbo et Alassane Ouattara revendiquent tous deux la présidence, les divisions politiques viennent aggraver le climat de violence.

Alors que les instances régionales et internationales ont à plusieurs reprises exhorté M. Gbagbo à céder la place, les sanctions et les efforts de médiation sont bien incapables de débloquer l'impasse. M. Gbagbo et M. Ouattara ont des administrations rivales et

Côte d'Ivoire crisis displaces nearly 82,000 people in the region

Nearly 82,000 people have either been displaced within or outside of Côte d'Ivoire since the crisis began though it is very likely that the true figure is higher.

As part of IOM efforts to track population movements caused by the political stalemate and violence in the West African country in order to ensure those that need help are given it, the Organization has so far gathered information of nearly 82,000 people who have either been internally displaced or have crossed the border into or through any one of Côte d'Ivoire's five neighbouring countries.
