Université de Cocody, Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. 2011.


Abidjan university of Cocody is closed since the beginning of the post electoral crisis in Ivory Coast. The Cocody campus, the largest in the country, is falling into disrepair day after day, as it continues to be plundered in absence of securing the area. Once hold by the powerful student union FESCI, which step by step became a violent militia in favor of former President Laurent Gbagbo in the 2000 years, it is now held by the FRCI, the republican forces of Ivory Coast who helped Ouattara seize the power last April 2011.


Six months after the crisis, the situation is not encouraging as students are still no longer back to the university and the state of university is worsening.
