The Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, (NIIA) appears shifting its focus from dialogic engagements of bilateral nature to conferencing. And the topic of the one scheduled to hold Tuesday, May 17th, 2022 is “Democratic Consolidation and the Resurgence of Military Coups in Africa”.
The think tank is inviting its audience to the jaw jawing. It is not clear why NIIA put ‘democratic consolidation’ as what neopositivist researchers would call the independent variable, thereby suggesting that the observable resurgence of military coups could be a derivative of that variable but it is a topic that would, nevertheless, strike most observers of the trend. Students and researchers of African politics, Civil-Military Relations and Democratic Theory would keenly key onto the discussion.
Participants have a whole day to look at the issue area from all possible angles either by way of in-person attendance or via zoom. NIIA’s invitation as circulated indicates the zoom link to the conference, starting from 10 am.
