Abstract:This special issue of 'African Security Review' focuses on Nigeria. The seeming contradiction between being one of Africa's undisputed powerhouses while beset by intractable inner turmoil and violence makes Nigeria a fascinating case study.

(Olusola Ogunnubi, Ufo Okeke-Uzodike); The military and human rights violations in post-1999 Nigeria: Assessing the problems and prospects of effective internal enforcement in an era of insecurity (Ibikunle Adeakin); Nigeria's military failure against the Boko Haram insurgency (Habibu Yaya Bappah); Boko Haram's attacks and the people's response: A 'fourth pillar' of the responsibility to protect? (Vesselin Popovski, Benjamin Maiangwa ); Internally displaced persons and the challenges of survival in Abuja (Stephen Adewale); The fate of hostages: Nigeria's conflict theatres in comparative perspective (Samuel Oyewole); The Abuja bombings: Boko Haram's reaction to President Buhari's actions (Freedom C. Onuoha, Temilola A. George); Dandal Kura: A narrative to challenge Boko Haram (David L. Smith). [ASC Leiden abstract]
