Anglophone Crisis       LUcat Search catalogue MMS 9839776106302711

Scope note
Civil war in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon, declared in November 2017 by the government of Cameroon on Ambazonian separatists, who had unilaterally proclaimed independence earlier that year. In 2016, the conflict had started out as a low-scale insurgency in the Anglophone territories of Northwest Region and Southwest Region (collectively known as Southern Cameroons). Suppression by Cameroonian security forces of protests in 2016 and 2017 had been followed by a guerilla campaign called for by Ambazonian separatists and within a year the conflict had spread to most parts of the Anglophone regions. After declaring war, the government sent army units into the Anglophone regions.
