In Nigeria, there have been many different wars over the years, but community conflicts are by far the most common. Nigeria is a multiethnic nation, thus there will inevitably be a variety of ethnic and religious conflicts. These intercommunal conflicts have gotten so bad that they are now affecting the stability and security of the country and the region.
The damage of property, the relocation of people, and the loss of life have been the main effects of these crises. The biggest problem in resolving communal conflicts is how to keep a healthy balance between the opposing sides of the divide because these conflicts have evolved through time.
The goal of this course is to analyze the factors that lead to communal conflict’s escalation, teach students how to balance the competing interests, wills, and capacities of disputing individuals, groups, or communities, and show them how mediators can offer multifaceted solutions to help both sides reach mutually agreeable and long-lasting agreements.
The course is scheduled to be held as follows:
Date: 29th – 30th August, 2023
Time: 9am – 12pm and 2pm – 5pm WAT
