In this study, I deal with factors which have contributed to civil wars and public discontents in the Republic of Congo. The basic hypotheses of the text are the following: the conflict in the Republic of Congo was causes by failed democratization process in 1991 – 1997; and the failed democratization process was influenced by a number of internal and external factors including (in)direct intervention of France, insufficient support from international community, and internal political clashes based mostly on ethnoregional platforms. While the first hypothesis arises primarily from internal political realities, including the rule of strong personality, heritage of Communism, and elimination of relevant opposition forces as well as inability to reach a true national consensus, the second deals with political cliché of many African countries which are more or less deponent on foreign economic and political support, especially from the side of former colonial powers.
