Abstract:Since October 2016, the western regions of Cameroon have been the scene of strikes and protests. First led by lawyers and teachers defending the special status of law and education in these anglophone regions, the protests spread to the entire population. This briefing places the current crisis in the postcolonial history of the Cameroonian state and 'anglophone' mobilization, and explains the contemporary dynamics of the crisis in terms of the 'transition' period in which the government has been stuck for some years. It draws on a hundred interviews conducted by the authors in Cameroon in 2016 and 2017. Notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
