Background


Following a disputed election outcome in 2000, fighting erupted between forces associated with the victor, Laurent Gbagbo, and Alassane Outtara (barred from contesting the election). A power sharing arrangement was negotiated in November 2001, followed by a peace agreement in January 2003 (the Linas Marcoussis Agreement).
