More detail about Senegal
Senegal is a Peaceful African Nation
Senegal is a western Africa country that is next to Mauritania, Mali, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau. The country may be in an area of Africa that has dealt with a number of wars but is also a country that has worked with helping to support peace in many different areas.
Senegal has worked with a series of democratic elections over time. Senegal has been a fully democratic nation since 1960 when it became independent. Since then, Senegal has been more stable in nature than other countries in this part of Africa.
The country has been working to support processes to stop violence and other concerns around Africa. The country is noted for having a strong border. However, this has not stopped conflicts from occurring around the borders of Senegal. As a result Senegal has accepted a number of refugees from many different places around Africa.
Most of the refugees around Senegal are from Mauritania. Some other refugees from Guinea have been added to the country as a means of trying to protect these people from violence in different areas.
This has not stopped Senegal from being a completely peaceful country. The Casamance region of Senegal has dealt with some concerns over how weapons are being smuggled into the area. There are also concerns about how Senegal is being used in some areas for the transportation of illegal drugs from different continents to other places around the world. In fact, many people who lived in the region have been forced out of their homes and have fled to other parts of Senegal.
Most internally displaced people in Senegal have moved back to their old homes. However, it is expected that the number of IDPs in Senegal could increase if the disputes around Casamance continue to evolve and eventually become worse than they already are.
