Historical Research on Boko Haram: a Debate: The Cases of Ansaru and the Chibok Kidnapping

Abstract [en]

The thesis focuses on the phenomenon of Boko Haram in Nigeria, attempting to give an understanding of the group based on the academical analysis that has been elaborated through time. A contextualisation of the movement’s evolution introduces two cases of study, currently under scholars’ scrutiny: the birth of the splinter-cell Ansaru and the Chibok kidnapping.

The work is integrated by on-going debates among scholars and the most recently published contributions to the research.
