The history of Central African Republic merges with military regimes that have left their mark on this country in the heart of Africa. In December 2012, the Seleka rebellion occupied the northern half of the country, routing the regular army. The success of this offensive spurs us to examine the causes of socio-political instability in the country and to identify some perspectives brought by the Libreville Agreement of 13th January 2013.
