Nigeria, Nsukka and Lagos

University of Nigeria, Department of Sociology and Anthropology In collaboration with: University of Lagos, and Setforth Nigeria Organization (NGO)

This MOOC addresses crime, violence and social conflicts that undermine urban safety and security globally, thereby engendering a regime of fear and widespread episodic disruptions of social and economic lives. Participants of this MOOC will gain a better understanding of the driving forces, nature and dynamics of urban social conflict (especially in developing societies undergoing rapid urbanisation) and build capacity in peacebuilding and conflict management.
