The Institute for Security Studies (ISS) is organizing a webinar on how forecasting can help prevent violent conflict in sub-Saharan Africa. In the region, political instability is driven by an intricate combination of risk factors, including demographics, poor development, regime type, cross-group discrimination and structural imbalances. Understanding which risks are increasing and how they interact in the long term is key to preventing violent conflict.

This View on Africa, presented by ISS Senior Researcher Dr. Julia Bello-Schünemann, can be attended in person or online via Voiceboxer.

Four years after the Chibok girls’ abduction, keeping girls out of school remains a key part of Boko Haram’s violent campaign in Nigeria. In Borno state, parents are reluctant to send their girls to school and many boarding schools have closed. But why is educating girls so vital in the fight against Boko Haram? And how can girls continue to attend school where the group remains a threat?

This View on Africa is presented by Ms. Uyo Yenwong-Fai, Researcher for the Institute of Security Studies in Pretoria. She will discuss how girls’ education can help win the war against Boko Haram.
