    This conference will bring together Cameroonians and supporters of democracy in Cameroon to participate in evaluating, discussing, planning, and re-engaging the country’s democratization. The goal is to critically evaluate the democratization process and reinvigorate national and international debate on Cameroon’s democratization efforts by examining the best strategies to promote and move the process forward.  This event is cosponsored by the SIS Dean’s Office in collaboration with the Diaspora-based organization, Progressive Initiative for Cameroon.  To register or for other details, go to http://www.picam.org/events/democracy/home.htm.
