Abstract:This article discusses the preliminary results of a research project on Cameroonians' urge for international migration and the possible impact of Cameroonian migrants on their home communities, conducted in 2007 by Swiss and Cameroonian anthropologists and graduate students. The focus of the project was on transnational relations of migrants from Cameroon within the non-Western world, and the perception of these relations by members of the migrants' communities of origin. Transnationalism here refers to mobility across multiple national borders and to migrants entertaining regular and sustained contacts with individuals and communities in two or more nations. Research centred on three regional clusters: intra-African migration, migration of Muslim Cameroonians to Arab countries, and Chinese-African exchange relations. Bibliogr., notes.
