The conflict in the northeastern part of Nigeria is the most complex in the world, as the conflict continues to take different dimensions, more non-state security actors continue to emerge thus making the conflict quite difficult for a one-way-centered intervention. The international communities, donor agencies, INGOs, and NGOs present do get overwhelmed as such and often overlook the significance of community inclusion and ownership.
Young people and communities have been the most affected by the violent terrorist activities in the region and thus making them the largest pool of beneficiaries in the humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding arena- this position of vulnerability has led them to be seen as mere beneficiaries and have often been involved only in the politicized decision-making process and then cut off from the designing, implementation, monitoring and evaluation phase of projects meant for them.
