Forced migration is constantly increasing in the world. Although in the 20th century refugees were the main victims of this phenomenon, today the majority of exiles are living inside their countries’ borders. Humanitarian aid, developed originally for refugees, must now adapt to this change that raises issues of legal recognition and aid for forced migrants.

Cameroon, whose borders are the scene of three crises that give rise to forced transnational and infranational displacements, is interesting terrain to analyze the effects of legal and practical categorization processes of forced migrants according to whether they are refugees or internally displaced persons.
