Southern Cameroonians are citizens of the former British Southern Cameroons, currently North-West and South-West Regions of the Republic of Cameroon, and are sometimes referred to as "Anglophones"
These consultations have involved Southern Cameroonian professionals of all walks of life, civil society leaders, all leaders of "restorationist"
The Conference has two main objectives:
• Engage all segments and professionals of Southern Cameroons origin to establish the majority view on a pathway to a permanent negotiated solution to the armed conflict, and
• Develop a detailed framework for a robust post-conflict reconstruction.
Seven Working Groups (WG) have been established to guide deliberations throughout the conference. WGs are made up of technical experts, representatives from major stakeholder groups and interested Southern Cameroonians. The 7 Working Groups are: (1). Mediation and Negotiations, (2) Economic Reconstruction, (3) Judiciary and Constitutional Affairs, (4) Peacebuilding and Public Security, (5) Healthcare and Humanitarian Relief, (6) Education and Vocational Empowerment, and (7) Governance.
The Coalition strongly encourages Southern Cameroonians from all walks of life to become actively engaged in defining a pathway to peace and the post-conflict future of Southern Cameroons.
