The 2019 symposium will feature three sessions with panelists discussing legislation, policy and impact, and the chronic insecurity in Nigeria.
As usual, attendance to the symposium is free but registration is required of anybody that intends to be at the event. The 2019 symposium is powered by The Future Project with support from National Endowment for Democracy among others.
