Description
Liberia: Can it emerge from the ashes?

After more than a decade of civil war, the West African nation of Liberia ranks among the world’s poorest and most dysfunctional: a place where the average life expectancy today (41 years) is lower than it was in 1975.

Can the new UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia finally bring a peace dividend to the long-suffering people of that country? How will its rebel armies, including thousands of child soldiers, be armed, healed, and reintegrated into society? Will ousted strongman Charles Taylor undermine the efforts to create a new political culture?

These are just some of the questions explored in this edition of World Chronicle, feature Jacques Paul Klein, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Liberia.
