Oil and Violent Conflicts in the Niger Delta

edited by Charles Ukeje

A publication of the Centre for Development and Conflict Management Studies (CEDCOMS), Ile-Ife, Nigeria. The study provides an overview of the relationship of the Nigerian State with oil; and of the oil communities engagement in violent conflict. It outlines the nature and causes of conflicts in the Nigerian Delta including grievances of oil communities, women and youth. The final chapters present proposals for the management of violent conflicts in the oil regions; the promotion of peace and stability in the region; and the role of state institutions and NGOs in providing a framework for socio-economic development in oil producing areas.
