The Electoral Hub is currently implementing a project titled “Strengthening Electoral Accountability in Nigeria” with the support of MacArthur Foundation. This project is aimed at institutionalising accountability and anti-corruption in Nigeria. One of our main activities under this project is conducting research to strengthen documentation and knowledge production on election, participation and accountability.
On Friday, 9th to Sunday, 11th July, we held a methodology workshop to conceptualise and develop a methodology for these research projects. The outputs of the research will be a book on Elections and Democratisation in Nigeria and another book on Electoral Accountability in Nigeria, both of which will contain chapters written by highly experienced and knowledgeable writers. Through this research, we hope to strengthen documentation and knowledge production on election, participation, and accountability, which should contribute to the wider aim of institutionalising accountability and anti-corruption in Nigeria.
