Increasing primary school attendance in the wake of violent conflict in Borno


This policy brief outlines the findings of two case studies of communities in and near Maiduguri to understand the main reasons for low school attendance after the end of violent conflict, and to identify gaps to support and improve primary school attendance. The studies were not designed to generate findings representative of Borno or North-east Nigeria as a whole, but they may be applicable to other urban and peri-urban communities in Borno that experienced similar reductions in violence.
