An award from the AfOx Collaborative Fellowship will make it possible for me to conduct interviews with the Anglophone Cameroonian diaspora in the UK and US through access to a good internet connection.
Outputs will include a peer reviewed publication, an accessible policy report to inform peacebuilding efforts, and the creation of a larger project with Oxford partners to investigate the conflict in greater depth moving forwards
Dr Roxana Willis, Principal Invesigator of the Cameroon Conflict Research Group, said
The Cameroon Conflict Research Group is delighted to collaborate with Dr Emile Sunjo, who is emerging as a prominent intellectual force in the area of conflict resolution. Dr Sunjo has developed a vital project to examine the peacekeeping role of the Cameroon diaspora in the ongoing conflict. We look forward to welcoming Dr Sunjo and hope to learn from his insights moving forwards.
Dr Emile Sunjo is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of International Relations and Conflict Resolution at the University of Buea, Cameroon. He obtained his PhD in Political Science with specialisation in International Relations and Conflict Studies from the University of Yaoundé II-Soa Cameroon in 2019. In 2019, he was a University College London (UCL), Global Engagement Funds Visiting Research and Teaching Fellow based in the Department of Geography.
