Guest at the ABI: Baldal Oyamta

During his visit at the ABI in December 2018, he reported on the current political and security situation in Chad. Chad is one of the poorest countries in the world. The revenues from oil production since 2003 have not improved the socio-economic situation of the population. On the contrary! Poor governance, corruption and state arbitrariness characterize the everyday life of the population. Conflicts in neighbouring states and current attacks by rebels on the Chad-Libyan border under President Déby's rule - in power since 1990 - endanger the security situation. The country is home to refugees from Niger and Nigeria who had to flee from Boko Haram, as well as from Darfour and the Central African Republic.
