La crisis anglófona en la República de Camerún y la inacción de los mecanismos africanos de resolución de conflictos

La inacción de los mecanismos africanos de resolución de conflictos en la crisis de Camerún

Resumen

En este trabajo se discute la actuación de los organismos regionales y subregionales africanos en búsqueda de una solución de la crisis vivida en la República de Camerún desde el 2016. Así mismo, se presentan los elementos que han llevado a la transformación de la Organización para la Unidad Africana en Unión Africana y las principales diferencias entre estos organismos. Aquí se discuten los procesos de creación y evolución de la Comunidad Económica de los Estados de África Central y la Comunidad Económica y Monetaria de los Estados de África Central, y se da énfasis a su actuación en los intentos por garantizar la estabilidad de África Central, además de analizar la crisis de Camerún, en donde se identifican los principales elementos que llevaron a su surgimiento y que ponen en discusión su evolución. Se evidencia que, en cuanto a la existencia de estructuras institucionales regionales y subregionales, direccionadas al tratamiento de casos de esta naturaleza, estas no han ejercido sus prerrogativas y cumplido con sus responsabilidades, lo que representa una amenaza significativa de retroceso en términos del panorama de seguridad africano.
