What do Africans think about violent social conflict, including its causes and preferred solutions?  How do conflicts affect popular support for democracy?

The Afrobarometer introduced questions on conflict in a survey in Nigeria in August 2001.  We chose to start with Africa’s most populated nation because it is a continental bellwether; as goes Nigeria, as a source of either chaos or stability, so goes the neighborhood.
