Show Notes:

The resolution of the Cameroon-Nigeria sovereignty dispute over oil-rich Bakassi Peninsula has been described by the UN as "a diplomatic success". Exactly how successful was it? What role did the UN play in resolving the crisis? What about the African Union? What has been the fate of the local people? This is an interview with Dr. Fongot Kinni Yen Kinni who has spent years researching the social side of the crisis and has written a book on this subject. Dr. Kinni is currently looking for a publisher.
