The Bakassi post-conflict management strategies, unlike most of the regular conflicts in Africa, is of a very unique kind, with regard to its causes; but it is quite critical when it comes to evaluating the strategies set in place to handle the post conflict disaster, destructions and to attend to the needs of the post-conflict victims. ...

Chapter 4. Bakassi Colonial Agent Based System Conflicts
Talking about colonial agent based system conflicts would seem anachronic if one does not analyse conflicts as derived from agent based systems and structures that promote the gestation of conflicts in the short and long term.

When I try to discuss corporate social responsibility – CSR, in post war zones, people tend to ask me why I should talk of corporate social responsibility as if war is business. But I always tell them that war is business (Fongot Kinni, 2004), since the end profit of war is essentially to promote the interest of the conquering party. ...
