Overview

Preparations for Nigeria's 2015 elections are underway. Some observers have expressed concern about the prospects for an improved electoral process next year and about early and significant political manoeuvring in the context of ongoing challenges in the country. This meeting will bring together representatives of Nigerian civil society with international policy-makers and policy-influencers. It will discuss how external actors can best engage with civil society and institutional actors in Nigeria in support of peaceful, free and fair elections.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
