The Republic of Liberia began in its present form after 1822 as a settlement of the American Colonisation Society, who believed that Black Americans faced better chances there. The indigenous people inhabiting this area included the Kru and Grebo, many of whom had migrated from regions further east in past centuries. In 1847, the settlers declared Liberia an independent republic, with a constitution modelled on that of America, and retained its independence during the subsequent period of European colonialism. After the USA recognised Liberia in 1862, the two countries had reasonable diplomatic relations: Liberia supported the USA in WWII and the USA subsequently invested in Liberian infrastructure to a modest extent, albeit within the context of foreign direct investment in the rubber industry. There has been periodic ongoing tension between the minority of black settler-colonisers and indigenous peoples since the republic was founded. The settlers established and dominated the country’s political system. A period of serious unrest began in 1980 with a military coup, years of military rule and two civil wars that devastated the economy, ending with a peace agreement in 2003. Since then, Liberia has experienced relative political stability and economic recovery, but the economy and infrastructure remains poorly developed, and recovery was affected by an outbreak of Ebola virus in 2014-15.
