Paper long abstract:

Education as well as Islamic education is the mechanism by which a society produces the necessary knowledge for its survival, sustenance and transmits it from one generation to another, mainly through youth training. This education can be non-institutionalized, but more generally organized and structured specially designed for the guidance of young people and the training of generations with university campus as theater. In the Cameroonian context, for the Muslim community, Islamic education is increasingly visible, recognized and discussed in public spaces, especially since the early 2000s, with the renewal of scientific and political debates around the problem of the relationship between this form of schooling and violent extremism. The establishment of Islamic higher education is the stumbling block between the Muslim community and the state in a context of secularism and counter-terrorism in northern Cameroon. The purpose of the present research is to grasp - through empirical approach - the dynamics around the paradigm of the regulation of the Islamic higher education in Cameroon in the context of the counter violent extremism.
