Nigeria and COVID-19: Implications for Governance, Security and Development

Research event
21 July 2020 — 3:00PM TO 4:30PM

The global socio-economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have exacerbated existing challenges in Africa’s most populous nation. The Nigerian federal and state governments have implemented numerous measures in an effort to mitigate some of the short-term effects of coronavirus. However, as mitigation measures ease, the longer-term effects of this health emergency will begin to manifest, in governance, security and development outcomes.

At this webinar in collaboration with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Nigeria, experts will explore the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Nigeria and consider how government and society might navigate these challenges to reduce their worst effects.
