Threats to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees’ Operation in Cameroon
Threats to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees' Operation in Cameroon
David Nchinda Keming
Generally, interactions between individuals, institutions and nations do not always leave behind positive results. This is because, conflicts are inherent amongst human beings, institutions and so; was the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in Cameroon. Though, the threats were not the missionof the UNHCR, but apologetically, unforeseen circumstances endangered its presence in the country. The threats to this cooperation erupted from the interactions of the UNHCR, her employees and suppliers involuntarily compelled the government to mediate. The question addressed here is what were the roots to these threats and what dimensions were employed to mitigate them? This paper only discusses conflicting instances that attempted to mar the UNHCR’s operations in Cameroon. It argues that though; the timely intervention of the government was intended to respect the accords it signed with the UNHCR; it nevertheless left non-negligible implications on the country’s image on the global stage.
