When English-speaking civilians began protesting discriminatory government policies in 2016, government security forces cracked down violently. By 2017, armed Anglophone separatists began fighting for independence for the territory they refer to as Southern Cameroons, or Ambazonia. Violent conflict primarily between armed separatists and state security forces continues to date. Experts have stated that abuses by state security forces and armed separatist groups may amount to crimes against humanity. With more than 6,000 people killed and over 600,000 internally displaced, civilians in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions remain at immediate risk of mass atrocities. Meanwhile, in Cameroon’s Far North region, civilians are being targeted in a conflict between Boko Haram insurgents and state security forces.
