The aim of this programme is to develop the capacity of early career researchers in Nigeria working in the field of migration, forced displacement and livelihood transformation. Forced migration and displacement is on the increase in Nigeria. Despite millions of people from the sub-region forcibly displaced, there is an underrepresentation of scholars from institutions in Nigeria publishing in high quality international journals resulting in limited knowledge production. This workshop will enable mutual learning between editors of high-ranking journals in the subject matter and early career researchers in the country working at the intersection of migration and forced displacement in Nigeria. This will be achieved through coaching, networking, and further mentoring with the ultimate aim of getting the research of early career researchers (ECRs) published in the high-ranking subject matter journals.
Workshop team: Dr Olayinka Ajala, Leeds Beckett University; Professor Taibat Lawanson, University of Lagos; Dr Faeren Agaigbe, Benue State University, Makurdi.
