One of the most prosperous countries in Sub Saharan Africa, Gabon sits on the continent’s central West coast, bordered by Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo. Independent from France since 1960, Gabon made moves towards multi-party democracy during the 1990s, though the results of the 2009 election were challenged by one of the losing parties. Ongoing issues include juvenile justice, media intimidation and lack of regular reporting to UN human rights bodies.
