The Washington Post predicts a year full of #coups in Africa
The Washington Post’s foreign affairs blogger #Max_Fisher (about whose infatuation with coloured maps we blogged before here and here) posted an entry earlier this week entitled: ’A worrying map of countries most likely to have a coup in 2014’. It is based on the work of political scientist #Jay_Ulfelder. The post includes a coloured map of the globe with countries coloured from light yellow to dark brown. And as you might guess, the darker the country, the more likely it will see a violent overthrow of the government some time this year.
