All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom of Religion or Belief Publish Report: Nigeria: Unfolding Genocide?
On 15/06/20 the All-Party Parliamentary Group for International Freedom of Religion or Belief published a report entitled Nigeria: Unfolding Genocide?
Baroness Cox is the current Co-Chair of the APPG for International Freedom of Religion or Belief.
The report was the result of an inquiry into the escalating violence in Nigeria characterised as the farmer-herder conflict. This violence has manifested along ideological lines as the herders are predominantly ethnic Fulani Muslims and the farmers predominantly Christians. There has been significant debate about the driving force behind the worsening crisis and the report was commissioned to help develop a nuanced understanding of the drivers of violence and increase parliamentary, public and Governmental interest in the issue.
The full report can be found below:
