Cameroon Ranked 7th Most Unpeaceful Country In Africa.

Cameroon has been ranked as the 7th most unpeaceful country in Africa according to the Global Peace Index Report for 2021.

The Global Peace Index report produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness.

The report for 2021 ranks Cameroon as the 38th most peaceful country in Africa out of 44 countries, just ahead of 6 countries; Nigeria, Mali, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of  Congo, Somalia, and South Sudan. This means the country is actually the 7th most unpeaceful country on the continent.

In the world, Cameroon is ranked  145th out of 163 countries by the Global Peace Index for 2021. And this means Cameroon, which was considered years ago as one of the most peaceful countries in the world is now among the top 20 most unpeaceful countries in the world.


Mauritius is ranked as the most peaceful country in Africa, followed by Ghana, Botswana, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, and Senegal.

Iceland maintains its position as the most peaceful country in the world with Afghanistan being the least peaceful country in the world for the fourth consecutive year, followed by Yemen, Syria, South Sudan, and Iraq.

According to IEP, their ranking is done based on the following criteria: Political stability, violent demonstrations, violent crimes, weapons imports, internal conflict, neighboring country relations.

The 5-year armed conflict that has been ravaging the anglophone regions (North West and South West) of Cameroon and the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northern regions has certainly increased the level of political instability, crime, internal conflicts, and other factors which have helped to reduce the country’s level of peacefulness.
