Tracing the Ideology in an Ideological Struggle: What are the Niger Delta Militant Conflicts about? by Olanshile Akintola

  • Seminar Room G, Manor Road Building, Manor Road Oxford OX1 3UQ (map)

The presentation seeks to shine light on the complicated Niger Delta conflict story. Building on extensive Niger Delta literature, it explores militant narratives used to justify actions taken by non-state actors against the state. More specifically, it focuses on the ideological rationale, or lack thereof, used by these groups to explain away actions.

A light sandwich lunch is provided for seminar participants at 12:50.
