About this Talk

This webinar will discuss the role of secondary and smaller urban areas in the conflict economies involving Islamist insurgencies in the Lake Chad Region. 

West Africa faces a process of rapid urbanization, with small and medium communities mushrooming without a corresponding increase in security, leaving their enlarged populations vulnerable to predation by armed groups. 

The webinar will present the findings from our latest research report on conflict economies in north-eastern Nigeria and northern Cameroon. The report highlights the illicit flows, looting and taxation practices along the region’s ‘urban systems’ – cities, towns, roads and food production infrastructure that have been severely hindered by armed groups.
