Call for Articles

On Policy Magazine, a monthly publication of Denis and Lenora Foretia Foundation, is inviting articles for its forthcoming maiden edition. The goal of On Policy is to contribute to policy guidelines that would improve good governance with the view of attaining peace in Cameroon and Africa at large. On Policy’s vision is to encourage and popularize more scientific knowledge in the areas of focus to average readers in a bid to promote altruism and dedication to positive actions towards peace, democracy and good governance. The focus is to narrow the deepening cultural, economic, ethnic, linguistic, political, religious and other detachments that are pervasive in Africa today. Therefore, adopting a multicultural approach especially through public dialogues to find common consensus in actions, ideas and opinions is what On Policy aims at propagating to Cameroonians and Africans alike through her publications.

On Policy covers a number of themes in the fields of peace and security, democracy, governance and leadership. Some of these include:

  • Analytical articles on governance, leadership, democracy, peace and security and conflict resolution.
  • Reviews of books on contemporary governance issues in Cameroon and Africa at large.
  • Apolitical opinions that are objectively written demonstrating a strong ability to provide mature responses to frequently asked questions relating to good governance.
