Political Science and International Relations lecturers David Mickler and Mark Beeson both have articles in The Conversation this week.
David Mickler's piece titled 'Countering Boko Haram: can a regional approach help Nigeria?' considers the evolving regional approach to countering the Boko Haram insurgency that has been inflicting terror in and around northeastern Nigeria.
