The partner organisation Justitia et Pax Douala (CDJP) works on behalf of the diocesan church in the field of justice and peace. The Commission in Douala is at a turning point in its history, as it is becoming increasingly important for it to strengthen the abilities of its direct partner, the Justitia et Pax Committees, in parishes, in advocacy and social analysis. In Cameroon, it is the first diocesan office ever to merge the previous Justitia et Pax Commission with the Migration Office into the "Service pour le Développement Humain Intégral" (Service for Holistic Human Development).
