MULTIPARTISM AND THE ULTRA-DOMINANT POSITION OF THE CPDM RULING PARTY IN CAMEROON
I was selected by NIAS to enrich the bibliography and write a paper on “Multipartism and the ultra-Dominant Position of the CPDM Ruling Party in Cameroon”. Apart from the aforementioned paper, I arrived at NIAS with two draft papers and a final version of a book and intended to enrich these with theory, to rewrite and to finalise them. Soon after my arrival, I received some conference papers with the purpose to edit a book. My stay was helpful in allowing me to enrich the theoretical framework of my forthoming book, to rewrite and finalise the two papers, and send all of these for publication. For the book I will be editing, I have read and commented on the various papers and sent my comments to the authors, from whom I have already received feedback. For the topic on multipartism in Cameroon, I only acquired the documentation and received comments from colleagues recently, and I will write this paper upon my return.
