West Africa Security Review: Nigeria, the Failing State?

West Africa Security Review: Nigeria, the Failing State?

REPORT • Jul 2022

Since our last series of reports focusing on the security landscape in West Africa, instability has worsened, violence has propagated, and regional governance is at risk of collapsing.

This four-report series will examine the region’s problems thematically, with this first report setting out the case for why the region is important and how a failing Nigeria, the region’s largest state, is setting the conditions for wider regional failure.
