When Half Bread Is Simply Not Enough: Internally Displaced Children In The Boko Haram Insurgency And Nigeria's Obligation Under The 2009 Kampala Convention

Article by Olusola Babatunde Adegbite


The obligations for Nigeria under the Kampala Convention are present and true. The Boko Haram insurgency has presented a salient problem of internal displacement caused by insurgency and other negative impacts on children. While there have been significant domestic responses to these obligations by the Government of Nigeria, there are still large impediments to the full realization of these obligations. It is our hope that these issues are adequately addressed to usher the country’s internally displaced children into a new season of robust assistance and protection.
