This book provides empirical evidence on the extent to which inappropriate governing strategies are the main internal obstacle to development in Cameroon. The authors discuss factors contributing to problematic governance from multidisciplinary perspectives, and demonstrate the extent to which such inadequacies impede social change. To promote development, the authors argue for the implementation of a governance strategy that comprises, inter alia: adopting appropriate development strategies; decentralizing administration to make for popular participation and ensure accountability; taking steps to fight corruption; and ensuring the enforcement of property and cultural rights.
