Cameroon Anglophones Still Don't Feel 'Special' Despite Status

In the last week of 2019, Cameroon's parliament approved a bill that will grant "special status" to the country's two Anglophone regions. This initiative was a result of the Grand National Dialogue that the government convened in October purportedly to resolve the war of secession that has killed at least 3,000 people and displaced over half a million since its outbreak in 2017. For their part, separatists have roundly rejected the measure as illegitimate.
