Presence in: Nigeria
Focus: Peace-building & Transitional Justice

Founded in 2019, MDI works to transform the way the world deals with conflict – away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative problem-solving. We operate in the northeast and north central Nigeria we have worked in collaboration with BAHRN to implement one element of the country’s strategy that revolves around promoting peacebuilding in areas of tension. This project falls firmly into this category, while other major projects deal with mitigating violence in Bauchi, Plateau, and Gombe State and supporting the reintegration of ex-combatants in Gombe with consensus-based advocacy training, public communications training, media training and production, and the facilitation of dialogue processes. We combine these tools in innovative ways to engage all levels of society.
