Conflicts in Jos city affect Nomadic Milk

The conflicts that took place in Jos at the end of November affect our upcoming trip. We decided, after carefully consulting our local contacts, not to work in Plateau State for now. Besides the obvious safety issues, the objective of the NomadicMILK project has always been to find stories of common daily life. We do not feel it to be the most logical thing to continue working in Jos and the nearby village of Shonung after the conflicts, as daily life there has been severely disturbed. We also did not want to postpone our work, so we decided explore shifting the focus of our project to Abuja and its vicinity. As of now this seems to be possible. Therefore we will still go to Nigeria, but probably with totally different people and different results.
