The last two decades have been very challenging for Africa in terms of security threats and their management. Evidence of these problems are most evident in the Darfur crisis in Sudan; the election crises in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Cote d’Ivoire, the 2011 uprisings in North Africa; the problem of maritime piracy in Somalia; crises in Nigeria’s Niger Delta, Plateau, North-East geopolitical and several others.

Hi Nathaniel, thanks for your reply. Our schedule has gone a bit crazy but maybe we could meet on Wednesday morning? My local number in Nigeria is 08100391926. We'd want to talk about the root causes of conflict in the North, the middle belt and the Delta (or whichever of those you are comfortable talking about), as well as your experience and assessment of peacebuilding initiatives. Let me know if that's possible.

Hi Nathaniel, I'm in Nigeria doing some research on the role of religion and ethnicity in conflicts. I'd love to meet and hear more about your work- where are you based? I'd also love recommendations on other organisations doing peacebuilding work-- in Lagos or Abuja. Thanks a million.
