Cameroon’s Far North: A New Chapter in the Fight Against Boko Haram

The intensity of the conflict against Boko Haram in Cameroon’s Far North has diminished, though the movement still poses a threat and the humanitarian situation remains precarious. Long-term stability hinges on how the government resolves two principal security challenges: first, dealing with former combatants and other Boko Haram members; and, secondly, determining the future of community self-defence, or vigilante, groups. A well-designed policy toward former Boko Haram members could lead those that are still active to surrender while vigilantes could turn to crime if left to their own devices.
