Here is a copy of my 2012 JSOU report on Boko Haram, the terrorist group in northern Nigeria designated on November 13, 2013 as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. Department of State.
Summary: This monograph assesses the threat Boko Haram poses to Nigeria and U.S. national security interests. Boko Haram is largely a local phenomenon, though one with strategic implications, and must be understood and addressed within its local context and the longstanding grievances that motivate terrorist activity. The chapters explore Nigeriaâ€™s ethnic fissures and the role of unequal distribution of power in fueling terrorism. Indeed, these conditions, combined with the ready availability of weapons, contribute to Nigeriaâ€™s other security challenges including militancy in the Niger Delta and organized crime around the economic center of the country, Lagos.
