The “Anglophone Problem” and the Political Future of Cameroon

THE DEPARTMENT OF POLITICS AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF JOHANNESBURG INVITES YOU TO A PANEL DISCUSSION ON:

The “Anglophone Problem” and the Political Future of Cameroon

The panel will discuss the historical and contemporary drivers of ongoing protests in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon, against the backdrop of debates on a return to a federal system of government, and the activism of secessionist groups advocating the independence of the former British Southern Cameroons (today’s Northwest and Southwest regions). It will reflect on the implications of these events for the political future of the country.

Panellists:
Prof Carlson Anyangwe, Walter Sisulu University
Prof Achille Mbembe, University of the Witwatersrand
