About Me

Juan Fandos-Rius (Valencia, Spain) graduated in Law at Universitat Jaume I in Castellón de la Plana, Spain, where he works as a civil servant for the Sports Department of the city council since 1998--also worked as acting Service Head for European Union Affairs (2008-2010). He became interested in Central African Republic history at 15. In 1998, as the military uprisings ended, he could finally travel to the Central African Republic. He is a corresponding member of the Committee of the Almanach de Bruxelles site for the information about the Central African Republic. He has written extensively on the Central African Republic, including:

Help, Addings, Comments and Information

Lycée Boganda of Bangui, July 1998

I really appreciate help, addings, comments and information on the Central African Republic. I am interested on Central African Republic institutions, traditional polities, ethnic groups, natural resources & conflict, vexillology, administrative divisions, politics, biographies, etc. I may also provide additional information for anyone interested in any subject related to the Central African Republic when possible.
