Preventing violence and recruitment to extremist groups in Northern Nigeria

Preventing violence and recruitment to extremist groups in Northern Nigeria

Date:

Our latest learning summary highlights the main successes, challenges and lessons learned during a project implemented by our local partner Peace Initiative Network (PIN) to build community resilience to violence in Northern Nigeria.

The project aimed to reduce unemployment and idleness as an incentive for recruitment into violence by providing vocational training with conflict resolution and leadership skills to young people. It also aimed to address divides between different ethnic and religious groups by bringing them together to play sports and learn how to work together for peace.

Read the summary today to find out more about the project’s impact, and the main challenges and successes, as well as key recommendations for PIN and like-minded organisations to consider.
