Violent conflict has disrupted life in the anglophone regions of Cameroon since 2016. Thousands of people have been killed, over half a million Cameroonians have been displaced, distressing images of human rights abuses have emerged, many children no longer attend school, and market and farm life have significantly dwindled. Despite the severity of the violence and its effects, the Norwegian Refugee Council judges the Cameron conflict as the most neglected displacement crisis in the world.

The Cameroon Conflict Research Group is a research team within the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford. The Group was established to investigate the conflict from a number of angles:

  • What are the causes of the conflict (both historical and recent)?
  • Who are its main parties?
  • What is the role of the international community in the conflict?
  • What are the perspectives of its stakeholders?
  • And what routes to resolution are promising?
