Nigeria: Demography Political Economy Analysis

The team, led by Gareth Williams, is undertaking a political economy analysis to help the Nigeria demographic diagnostic and roadmap to answer the question: What are the political, social and cultural barriers, levers and opportunities for the UK government in supporting a demographic transition in Nigeria?

The study will improve the UK's understanding of the political economy issues underlying Nigeria’s demographic transition. It will also consider the role of the next census, proposed to take place in 2022. The primary audience is FCDO Nigeria, who leads demography work and engagement across UK government departments in Nigeria.
