Abstract: In many conflict-affected countries around the world, there are a multitude of actors who are working to reduce and prevent conflicts, ranging from civil society actors to track I diplomats. Several countries around the world have created government sponsored offices and/or initiatives to facilitate peace negotiations between conflicting parties (including the government). These include institutions such as the High Commissioner for Peace in Colombia and the Secretariat for Coordinating the Peace Process in Sri Lanka. To date there has been little research and writing about the work of government sponsored institutions in facilitating a reduction to conflict. This paper will explore how commissioners or secretariats for peace function within conflict environments, what are their roles and impacts on the conflicts.

Abstract: On June 25th 2009, Nigerian President Musa Yar’Adua extended an unqualified amnesty to the militants of the Niger Delta. The militants had 60 days, August 4th to October 4, 2009, to accept the offer of amnesty for crimes committed. From there they were expected to enter in good faith the process of Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR). Before ‘The Amnesty Programme,’ dating as far back as the 1960s, the Niger Delta was rife with militant violence against the state and federal government, oil infrastructure sabotage, and what is known as oil ‘bunkering’ or the illicit tapping and diverting of oil reserves. Kidnapping and ransoming of foreigners connected to the oil industry was also a major problem in the area. Since the implementation of ‘The Amnesty Program’ by President Yar’Adua (2007-2010) and its continuation by Goodluck Jonathan (2010-2015), significant progress has been made towards achieving peace in the region; the peace, however, is tenuous at best, and temporary at worst. The paper uses historical and contemporary contextualization through secondary sources to evaluate what opportunities there will be to address the root causes of unrest and disenfranchisement in the Niger Delta under President-elect Muhamadu Buhari. The paper addresses the following questions, which key stakeholders does President-elect Buhari need to engage? How can he substantively address the issue of corruption in the Nigeria’s oil sector, the extractive activities in the Niger Delta being major part of that sector? The findings of the paper will later be evaluated through fieldwork.
