La République centrafricaine demeure un pays fragile. Meurtrie par plusieurs années de conflit dont l’impact perdure, elle doit faire face à des défis tant structurels que conjoncturels. Ces derniers mois, la violence a connu une fréquence et un niveau qui ont fait de l’année 2017 celle de toutes les inquiétudes. De multiples foyers de tension ont vu le jour à travers le pays et ont gagné des régions qui autrefois jouissaient d’une certaine stabilité.
