CONFERENCE ON MAKING DEMOCRACY WORK FOR NIGERIANS

Venue:                           Banquet Hall, Concorde Hotel, Owerri

Accommodation:           Concorde Hotel, Owerri

Abstract:
After twelve years of elected civilian government, Nigerians across divides are still asking questions about dividends of democracy. Data from Afrobarometer and CLEEN Foundation surveys indicate that the level of peoples’ satisfaction with the way democracy works in the country is plummeting by the year. Against this background, the conference seeks to bring stakeholders from state and non-state actors to brainstorm on the pertinent issue of making democracy work for ordinary people and formulating recommendations and actions plans that should inform political contestation, governance and civic action.

Additional Information
The Workshop is being organized by the CLEEN Foundation in collaboration with the Ford Foundation to mark Ford Foundation’s 50th anniversary of grant making on human rights and governance in Nigeria. For general matters relating to the contents of the workshop, please contact the workshop Coordinator, Chinedu Nwagu on 08033599804 or at chinedu.nwagu@cleen.org.
