How can Africa’s largest country build on the success of its recent elections? How can civil society and others consolidate the recent democratic gains and bridge the divides deepened by the election period? And what should Nigeria’s priorities be as it sets its course for the years to come?
These questions will be addressed at a Center for International and Strategic Studies discussion on democracy and governance in Nigeria. Panelists will share their perspectives on how best to address issues around security and the economy, and the task of re-building a national consensus around democracy and governance.
