The Separatist Map of Africa

The Separatist Map of Africa | Horn APHuG | Scoop.it
When African states gained independence, the continent's new leaders agreed to respect the old colonial borders to avoid endless wars.

 

This interactive map shows the major conflicts on the African continent where the combatants have geopolitical aspirations to separate from the state and create a new, autonomous state.  Click on the red arrows and you can read about the warring factions and the current situation in that region.

Unit IV - Non American

Edelin Espino's curator insight, December 5, 2014 11:04 AM

is sad to see how people just refer to it as "Africa" when every part has its own name. Even myself don't know many of them since they are irrelevant for the western people.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, December 17, 2014 12:08 AM

This interactive map does a great job of not only showing the sate of political struggles and military conflict within the whole of Africa. This shows the new countries many dissidents  and rebels wish to establish in order to give their people a cultural and ethnic home land. This give a good picture of simply how chaotic some parts of Africa truly are and how destabilized many regions are.

Heavily subsidised fuel prices in Nigeria have spawned a large-scale fuel smuggling industry in nearby Benin and Togo, where official prices are being undercut by as much as 15-30%. Canadian photographer Daniel Hayduk documents the illegal trade, which locals in one of Africa's poorest regions see as a vital part of a vast, informal economy
