The Global Center and Cameroon’s National School of Administration and Magistracy (ENAM) organized a two-day work session with experts in Cameroon. The session brought together local subject-matter experts, ministerial focal points, and ENAM and Global Center experts.
The purpose of the meeting was to elaborate and endorse a set of recommendations for Cameroonian policymakers emanating from a previously held training program for Cameroonian magistrates and administrators aimed at improving governance, human rights compliance, and access to justice in prevention and counterterrorism efforts. Among other topics, the recommendations proposed amendments to the 2014 antiterrorism law and the development of a sub-regional strategy on preventing violent extremism specific to the Far North Region.
This meeting forms part of a training suite for magistrates and administrators confronted with the threat posed by Boko Haram and ISIL-West Africa, funded by the US government. The multidisciplinary team of local experts serve as subject-matter trainers for the project and were selected following a rigorous selection process and a training orientation.
