NIGERIA: SHRINKING CIVIC SPACE IN THE NAME OF SECURITY

This research report, NIGERIA: SHRINKING CIVIC SPACE IN THE NAME OF SECURITY, is the third and final part of the Security Playbook Series conducted by 11 members of the Action Group on Free Civic Space (AGFCS). The Security Playbook is a research project that aims to interrogate the use and misuse of the security architecture to narrow the online and offline spaces for civic engagement and democratic participation in Nigeria. This third report examines the exploitation of the festering security challenges in Nigeria to undermine the ability of citizens to speak, associate, and organize freely, to mobilize for citizen action, and to participate in governance processes.
