Countering Their Insurgency?
Assessing the Challenges of UK ‘Remote’ Stability Operations in Nigeria
My PhD research focuses on the challenges the United Kingdom faces in supporting Nigeria’s counterinsurgency campaign against Boko Haram.
It maps and analyses British strategic rationale and involvement in the conflict, focusing on the scale, scope, coherence, conflict sensitivity and partners’ perceptions of its remote forms of support to the Nigerian State’s military efforts.
By examining UK’s experience in Nigeria, this research project contributes with theoretical and empirical knowledge on capacity building and overseas military assistance delivered to counter violent extremist organisations.
