Workshop - Peace and Security in Nigeria (PASiN)

DSC 0167The Nigeria Watch team, IFRA, the Department of African Studies of the University of Ibadan, IRD and the Institute for Peace organized the third Peace and Security in Nigeria (PASIN) conference between the 11th and 15th March 2024. During this period the Nigeria Watch team set up a training workshop on the methodological challenges of conflict studies in Nigeria with 25 Master and PhD students of the University of Ibadan. The students attended several lectures given by Nigeria Watch fellows such as Marc-Antoine Pérouse de Montclos, director and founder of Nigeria Watch, Vitus Ukoji Nwankwo, project manager, Dr. Victor Chinedu Eze and Dr. Abiola Victoria Ayodokun.

The participants were also honoured by the online presence of Dr. Michael Nwankpa, a researcher at the Centre for African Conflict & Development in London, for a lecture about studying conflicts in Nigeria. Precious Egbochice and Pablo Menguy, both working for Nigeria Watch, also helped to prepare PASIN. The students had the chance to write an essay on lethal violence in some selected Local Government Areas (LGAs) using the Nigeria Watch database, with corrections and remarks made by Dr.Tokunbo Olutayo, Director Institute of African Studies and Dr. Marc-Antoine Pérouse de Montclos.

The participant with the best essay, Felicia Gogogire Kolo, won a grant to conduct a 3-week fieldwork on factors that contribute to lethal crime in Shiroro Local Government Area, Niger State. Both the members of Nigeria Watch and the students had a very challenging but great and successful PASIN.  The participants shared intensively their own experiences and knowledge about the conflict and violence in Nigeria. See you in 2025 for the next edition!
