dc.description.abstractThis case study explores the recurring violence in Nigeria between ethnic and religious partisans of the Muslim-majority North and Christian-majority South, particularly as witnessed in Plateau State, centrally located between these two regions. The nature of this conflict is delved into via four main questions: What are the historical origins of difference and conflict within Nigeria? How are domestic religious forces and identities involved? How do issues of sharia, indigeneity, and the census intersect with religion? Are international influences important in exacerbating or resolving tension? The case study includes a core text along with a timeline of key events and a list of recommended further readings for additional information on the situation in Nigeria.en-US
