MOVE Project

The Mitigation of Violence in Elections (MOVE) for 2015 elections in

Nigeria was coordinated by the International Foundations for Electoral Systems

(IFES). The aim is to decrease the potential for outbreak of violence before, during

and after the 2015 elections.

CHDST was the partner organization in the Niger Delta which is in the SOUTH SOUTH

ZONE of Nigeria comprising of 6 states.  CHDST designed projects that strengthened

existing conflict mitigation and mediation platforms in the zone, identified hot

spots and devised appropriate intervention strategies.  Some of the strategies

included town hall meetings which were held in each of these locations with seasoned

personalities educating the electorates on effective ways of mitigating various

forms of violence during the elections.  There was street theaters performances, IEC

materials distributions among others.
