Abstract: This paper prolongs the reflection on the business and investment environment which remains the major determinant of the quality and quantity of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) destined for a country. Socio-political instability creates an unfavourable environment and represents a risk for the private investment in general and for FDI in particular. The unattractive nature of sub-Saharan African countries for foreign investors and the coexistence of socio-political instability factors such as civil wars, “coups d’états”, and different civil problems have pushed to use specific context of Cameroon to evaluate the relation between socio-political instability and the influx of FDI.
