The Nigeria Working Group is made up of civil society organizations in Washington, DC that work on Nigeria. These include humanitarian, peacebuilding, human rights, and governance groups, as well as a number of academics and thinktanks. The NWG has worked in relation to the northeast and middle-belt regions of Nigeria, focusing on increasing humanitarian assistance and access, military accountability, and supporting an effective response to the Boko Haram insurgency and displacement. We have also worked on certain thematic issues, such as the elections.
Since the NWG is a working group and not a formal coalition, there is not a formal membership process or definitive policy platform. Groups participate in particular projects as they align with their organizational objectives and scope of work.
