Nigeria

The Guernica Centre has joined Amnesty International and the Nigerian victims’ network Jire Dole in a quest to promote justice in that war-torn country

 

In the context of the longstanding conflict between the Nigerian government and the Islamic armed group “Boko Haram”, thousands of persons have experienced egregious human rights violations and abuses that have been amply documented. After an initial participatory assessment that took place in 2018 in Senegal, The Guernica Centre will jointly develop a victim-centered accountability strategy for the investigation and prosecution of international crimes and human rights violations that took place between 2011 and 2016 in Northeast Nigeria.

 

The context of our actions is complex as violence is ongoing, and the conflict responds to a range of socio-cultural, economic, ethno-religious and sub-regional factors.
