Research relationships

Nigeria research relationships have evolved throughout the project as it has been based on long established relationships with civil society, local governments, Nigerian academics, and community researchers. DEPA have held 2 conferences for Nigeria academics interested in DEPA’s themes. The first conference was held in the University of Abuja the second recently held in Maiduguri with the University of Maiduguri and the Centre for the Study and Promotion for Cultural Sustainability. In partnership we will produce a special edition/ book to highlight Nigerian academics and artists views on the decolonial discourse critically examining peace education.
