What is it about?

There has been several explanations why there are frequent inter-group conflicts in Africa and Jos, Nigeria particularly. But there are feeble attempts to explain how years of injustices against different groups generated the Jos conflict. This article is an attempt to fill this gap.

Why is it important?

This is important since it helps us to see how group inequality has continued to keep many societies in Africa unstable, generating different forms of conflicts, threatening security of lives and property and undermining development. The article helps us understand this phenomenon.


I hope this article helps African societies to see why several conflicts have remained persistent and the need to apply new public policies to address identity conflicts such as that in Jos, Nigeria.
