Ep. 124: A conversation with Tarila Marclint Ebiede about about violence and governance in Nigeria

Joining us this week is Tarila Marclint Ebiede, adjunct assistant professor of international affairs at Brussels School of Governance, Brussels, Belgium. His research examines the reintegration of ex-combatants, political violence, the impact of violent conflicts on local governance, youth and violence, peacebuilding and security in Nigeria. We talk to him about his research, the recent news of a fallen military jet plane in Nigeria, and his new Conflict Research Network (CORN) West Africa initiative.

In the news wrap, Kim and Rachel talk about that fallen military jet in Nigeria and share updates on the books you should be reading.
