While the #endsars movement in Nigeria was centred around widespread police brutality, it also represented a metaphor for broader youth concerns about their place in an increasingly fractured, uncertain, and unequal country. Our speakers will explore the protests and the questions they raise about citizenship, justice, and resistance in Nigeria.

Panelists:-

Aisha Yesufu (Active Nigerian Citizen & Rights Advocate)

Charles Ukeje (Professor of International Relations, Obafemi Awolowo University)

Ini Dele-Adedeji (Research Fellow, CAS)

The meeting will be held via Microsoft Teams and the joining link will be e-mailed to those registered on the afternoon of the event.
