Pastoralist livelihoods support millions of Nigerians and form an important part of the rural economy and society. There are different types of pastoralism in Nigeria ranging from nomadic to semi-settled and settled agro-pastoralism. This report looks at transhumant (or nomadic) pastoralism – the movement of livestock from one place to another between wet and dry seasons – and the dynamics of conflicts between farmers and pastoralists, which have steadily increased in Nigeria in recent years.
Transitional justice and democratisation nexus:

September 2015 will be remembered as a period when the conscience and morality of our collective humanity was tested, and generations to come will judge us on the decisions we made in this month.
There is overwhelming literature on the extensive involvement of children and youth in conflict and warfare in Africa and beyond. Literature addressing the positive contributions of young people when they are included in a nation's peacebuilding interventions post-conflict, however, is not as easy to come by. The latest Conference Paper published by ACCORD aims to contribute to the available body of knowledge regarding the benefits and importance of incorporating young people in peacebuilding processes to facilitate the achievement of sustainable peace.
ACCORD is 20 years old this year. Have we succeeded in our mission? The answer is a resounding YES! Our experience has taught us that Africa's conflicts are complex, multi-faceted social phenomena that require skilled interventions and political will. Our response is therefore not complacency but a renewed determination to examine our efforts, assess our successes and failures, examine our context to understand the nature of the societies we engage with and consequently grasp how these conflicts will manifest themselves.
The year 2011 will certainly go down in history as a watershed year, dominated by political and economic upheavals and natural disasters. The popular uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, together with the global protests under the 'Occupy Movement', have once again highlighted the power that ordinary citizens have to bring about change.
