Migrations et cohabitation politique interethnique dans un quartier de Douala au Cameroun : le cas de New-Bell, 1913-1990
The New-Bell Neighbourhood was established by the German colonial authorities with a view to settle the dual community of the Bell clan, which had been expropriated of their land possessions. This area gradually turned into a safe haven for various populations that immigrated to Douala.
The aim of this paper is to highlight the ways in which various New-Bell communities got involved in the local and national political life throughout the period that spans from 1913 to 1990. The research is based on sociological inquiries, oral history investigations, archival documents and books dedicated to the political life in Cameroon.
