Cameroon anglophone conflict negotiations will restart

Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Significance

The separatist groups involved quickly confirmed their participation, but four days later Cameroonian authorities publicly denied involvement in any peace talks and affirmed that the conflict in Cameroon’s anglophone regions was a purely internal matter.

Impacts

  • Anglophone armed groups may intensify violence to put pressure on the government to return to talks.
  • The political fallout from journalist Martinez Zogo's killing may alter the political balance within the ruling party and Biya’s entourage.
  • Cameroonian and Nigerian separatists may increasingly seek to work together.
