Permanent Emergency Powers in France: The ‘Law to Strengthen Internal Security and the Fight Against Terrorism’ and the Protection of Human Rights
Lena Muhs

On November 1, 2017, France introduced a new Counter-Terrorism Law ending a two-year state of emergency and making many of the exceptional measures taken under the state of emergency permanent law. Taking into account past practices of ethnic profiling displayed by the French police, the passing of the law constitutes a worrisome development and raises a number of concerns about France’s compliance with its human rights obligations. The paper discussed these implications of the new law in the wider context of counter-terrorism trends. Keywords: counter-terrorism, ethnic profiling, human rights, state of emergency

Strategies for building awareness for the potential of peace education in Cameroon
Ben Oru Mforndip

Peace education is yet to become a reality in Cameroon. This it seems because many persons do not know about it or better still because many persons are not aware of its benefits. Though unaware or ignorant about peace education, there are lots and lots of conditions that warrant the teaching of peace education in Cameroon. The purpose of this paper is to discuss some of the strategies for building awareness about peace education and to show that there are conditions that necessitate the teaching of peace education in Cameroon.

Keywords: Strategies, Building awareness, potentials, Peace, Education, Pedagogy.
