36 Years of Rocky ‘Stability’ in Paul Biya’s Cameroon

Paul Biya, the president of Cameroon has managed to stay in power for 36 years – and it’s no easy feat.

In an article for the World Politics Review, I look at the political situation in Cameroon.

Biya has managed to wield the carrot of political nomination and the stick of corruption trials. Hi reelection on October 7th is nearly assured, but this mandate will be the most challenging so far because of the anglophone crisis.

Before this, I investigated the time that Paul Biya spends abroad, Cameroon’s virtual mining that keeps the minerals in the ground and makes some people very rich, and corruption in Cameroon’s biggest mining project.
