United Nations Trusteeship Supervision in British Cameroons 1946-1958



This article examines United Nations trusteeship supervision in British Cameroons. It highlights the objectives, perspectives and roles the organisation adopted to achieve its goals in the territory. The UN supervision of the British Administration in the trust territory took place within a larger context of its action on all colonial problems during an era of East-West tensions. Once the United Nations began to function, the fundamental disagreement on colonial problems that had been apparent at the San Francisco Conference reappeared. United Nations initiatives transformed these problems by showing how they could be solved and by making it apparent that a solution was possible. The study is thus an attempt to raise questions and seek answers to the understanding of the roles the United Nations played in the territory during the period of the trusteeship. The objective is to evaluate the extent to which British colonial practises in the Trust Territory were in accordance with the Trusteeship objectives and principles.
