CONFLICT AND POVERTY IN AFRICA
Adam Adem Anyebe
Colonialism has been blamed for the socio-economic challenges, threatening African countries. The creation of these countries based on largely, on ethnic and generated conflicts. These conflicts have also generated poverty. This study therefore attempts to examine relationship between conflict and poverty in Africa. The study relied on secondary data. The study revealed conflicts generates poverty in Africa and it is therefore recommended that ethnicity should be de-emphasized in African societies since this promotes conflict and by extension poverty.
