The Society of International Affairs welcomes you to a seminar focusing on the role of civil society, especially women, in building peace, democracy, and sustainable development in Nigeria.
In April, Nigeria made the news all over the world with the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, in reaction to the abduction of over 200 Nigerian school girls by the militant group Boko Haram. Despite its 170 million citizens, oil resources, and second largest film industry in the world, we have heard little else about Nigeria in Sweden. However, the new democracy is struggling with armed conflict, inequality, corruption, and human rights abuses. With elections in Nigeria next year, this is a crucial time for an engaged debate on democracy, civil society and peace building in a country recently declared Africa's largest economy.
Join us on Wednesday evening for a discussion with Hauwa Mahdi & Tove Ivergård of the Women's International League for Peace & Freedom (IKFF).
