In Civ5 I have read there is a process to capture a city and then trade it, recapture it, and then get a liberation bonus. What are the conditions for this. Is there a waiting period that the city must be held. Does it work for non capitals?

  • Could you describe what you imagine the end result to look like? I think you listed all the steps and the process is rather straightforward, though I'm not sure if you see what happens there – Deltharis Mar 30 '15 at 0:41
  • The end result for the player would be a liberation bonus and, by the world congress, free votes forever. Obviously, the third-party would need to be an enemy of some sort, so the player doesn't mind declaring war. – Tyler Kropp Jul 24 '15 at 2:34

This question is a bit old, but yes, you can liberate it after conquering+gifting. You don't need to wait for it. It also works for non-capitals. You just have to deal with the war mongering malus and other political consequences when declaring war to the third party.
