ABSTRACT
The article discusses the apparent bleak outcome of Guinea's progress toward stability after a series of violent incidents between opposition demonstrators and security forces in Conakry. The situation is cited to be blocking Guinea's political transition since the death in 2008 of Lansana Conte, the republic's leader for 24 years. It is also cited that the country's slow progress on governance and reports on corruption will prevent opportunities for economic and social changes.
