Sometimes referred to as Africa in miniature, Cameroon has a climatic diversity and cultural and social diversity that reflects that of the continent. Since gaining independence in 1960, Cameroon has experienced relative peace, but only very slow progress towards democracy: President Paul Biya has been in power since 1982. A number of serious human rights violations continue in the country, including harassment of political opponents, threats against human rights defenders and the oppression of LGBT persons.
