Reconciliation and Transitional Justice in Northeastern Nigeria
August 20, 2018 | Grantee Publications | On Nigeria, Human Rights

As violence from the Boko Haram insurgency subsides in northeastern Nigeria, a report from the Centre for Democracy and Development recommends community-based approaches to reconciliation and transitional justice. The report outlines the extent of the atrocities and how different communities and population groups experience trauma, and it assesses the readiness of the most affected regions—Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe—to pursue transitional justice. The Centre, a MacArthur grantee, suggests paths forward that keep local cultural norms and community groups at the forefront as they pursue accountability and reckoning while reintegrating the affected communities.
