Formatted abstract
...Investment by the Nigerian government and donors to develop a cluster of economic opportunities that are navigated through a community process similar to the Global Memorandum of Understanding which was negotiated in the Niger Delta has much potential to bring peace. A limited amnesty and disarming of militants similar to what was negotiated in the Niger delta in 2010 may also help to mitigate community unrest, though ideological criminals who are unlikely to disarm will need a military enforcement response as well. There will surely be no quick solutions to the strife in the North but a process of positive engagement and lesson-drawing within Nigeria offers some hope to restore peace in this vibrant and vital nation.
