Project ID 235CMR5000

The project is a joint IOM-UNESCO intervention to address breaches to basic human rights, including the right to information and freedom of expression, of internal migrants from Cameroon's restive Anglophone regions with the overarching objective of building peace and strengthening coexistence among young people in host communities of the Littoral and West regions of the country. The current denial of these rights is a great cause for conflict in some communities bordering the war-torn North West and South West regions of Cameroun.
