This report analyses the expansion of Boko Haram in Niger and assesses the responses provided by the authorities. It describes, in particular, the way in which the jihadist insurgency is exploiting the social and economic dynamics of Niger, especially in the region of Diffa, in the south-eastern part of the country. The report makes several recommendations to the Nigerien authorities and their partners, which encourage them to develop a counter-insurgency strategy that does not only focus on the military response.
