Local Voices for Peace in Northern Nigeria

Date:

In June 2016, Peace Direct convened a ‘Peace Exchange’ in Northern Nigeria. This brought together 17 local peacebuilding organisations to collectively analyse the conflicts facing their communities, and develop joint strategies to help local groups build peace and prevent more mass atrocities in the region.

This report brings together their analysis and recommendations and adovcates for a shift to a locally-led approach, directly engaging and supporting civil society groups in order to reduce the devastation caused by conflict in Northern Nigeria.
