Guinea in 2008: the unfinished revolution


Engeler, M (2008). Guinea in 2008: the unfinished revolution. Politique africaine, (112):87-98.

Abstract

Guinea’s political transition seems never ending. In 2008, strikes, riots and clashes affected country and state. In the light of the events of 2006 and 2007, it is a question of interpretation whether the « revolution » finally came to a close in 2008 or if it is still going on. Within and beyond these interpretations, the Guinean military play an important but hardly predictable role. However described, the political scene looks like a paltry theatre and Guinean citizens, tired of political and economic difficulties, are more and more impatient.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
