Discussion Paper: The Jos Crisis: A Recurrent Nigerian Tragedy Abuja, June 28th, 2011

Book Lauch: Jos Crisis

The recurrent conflict in and around Jos, located in Plateau State, has cost many lives and destroyed much property. The conflict is increasingly carried out along religious lines, but observers agree that the true causes are social and political. These causes have yet to be addressed.

To stimulate the discussion about the crisis, the FES has cooperated with the researcher Dr. Adam Higazi from King’s College in Cambridge, UK, to analyze the current situation with regard to origin, development and possible solution of the conflict. In order to present and discuss the findings of Dr. Higazi's research, FES invited representatives of the Plateau State Government, civil societies, NGOs, academia and the media. The debate on June 28th, 2011 in Abuja provided all participants with a platform to discuss about concepts and resolutions. The longterm outcome of the exchange aims at a better understanding of the problem's origin and supports an inclusive and transparent approach of conflict resolution.
