WEBINAR SERIES: Cameroon: Paths to Peace in a Pandemic

April 18, April 25, May 2 - 11:00-12:00 EDT / 16:00-17:00 WAT

After three years of conflict, thousands have died, over 700,000 have been displaced, and 850,000 children cannot go to school. Where is Cameroon’s Anglophone Crisis headed? What can the international community do? These three webinars will explore ways ahead for Cameroon. Is there a realistic path toward a peaceful and just resolution of the crisis? What are the obstacles? The webinars are nonpartisan and apolitical, but they do encourage nonviolent resolution.
