Turbulent vs Stable Cooperation: How (Dis)location Affects Pathways of Civilian Cooperation in Boko Haram–controlled Territory

Thu., Apr. 7, 2022 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm


Speaker: Antonia Juelich, Research Fellow, International Security Program

Most people assume that civilians cooperate with rebels when they share their cause, and that the absence of cooperation signifies tacit or active resistance. However, this seminar seeks to reveal greater variation in civilian motivations and behavior in rebel-controlled territory. Based on interviews with people who have lived under Boko Haram's rule in Northeast Nigeria, it sheds light on the interplay between rebel structures and civilian agency in war zones.
