Cameroon: Confronting Boko Haram is a new report by International Crisis Group that points out the pros and cons of the Cameroonian government’s military response to fight against Boko Haram. The  report states that while the military campain has been partialy successful in disrupting the  jihadist group, the structural problems that allowed this threat to arise have not been addressed. 

To consolidate gains and bring lasting peace to the Far North, the government must now shift to long-term socioeconomic development, countering religious radicalism and reinforcing public services.
