Cameroon's Anglophone Crisis: Recent Developments and Issues for Congress Page: 4 of 4

Legislative authorization and appropriation of funds for foreign aid and security cooperation
are potential vehicles for congressional responses to developments in Cameroon, along with
oversight activities. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 (P.L. 115-141) directs funds
to promote democracy and strengthen accountability-"including within the security forces"-
in the Lake Chad Basin. H.Res. 718 would condemn the Cameroonian government's actions
against Anglophones, including the temporary detention of a U.S.-based Cameroonian-
American professor in late 2017.
