More than four years after it started, efforts to end the armed conflict have stalled in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions between the government of Cameroon and armed separatist groups. This conflict escalated after peaceful protests by teachers, students, and lawyers were violently repressed by the government under the leadership of Paul Biya, who has ruled Cameroon for over forty years. Paul Biya’s government has treated the conflict as an exclusively military one. Most experts agree that dialogue is necessary to resolve the conflict, and to abate civilian casualties on both sides. The United States and European Union have called on the parties to take a series of steps to resolve the crisis, including through resolutions of both houses of Congress. These urgings have been largely ignored. This panel will explore the origin and contours of what is commonly labelled “Anglophone crisis”, the humanitarian consequences as death tolls continue to rise, and the migration of Cameroonian populations internally, into neighboring parts of Nigeria, and across the Ocean to the U-S- Mexico border.
