Executive Summary

To be implemented over a period of six and a half years, the Canadian Action for Integration in Cameroon project, or CAIC, is purposed with fostering a lasting peace between Anglophone Cameroonians and the national government. The project is twofold; consisting of a preliminary mediatory phase that is to be immediately followed by a targeted, institution building endeavor, CAIC strives to provide a foundation that is conducive to peace, and so mitigates the root causes of present conflict. By addressing the primary motives that drive conflict, the project is well positioned to serve as a viable, long term remedy to what ills currently plague the relationship between Anglophone Cameroonians and the predominantly Francophone national government. In particular, CAIC endeavors to increase Anglophone participation in localized governance by way of education investment.
