To learn more about its resources, capacities, reputation, and prospects of the human rights sector in Nigeria, we gathered data in 2014 from local human rights organizations (LHROs), and the general public. We began by interviewing a representative sample of 30 local human rights organizations in Lagos. Next, with our Human Rights Perception Poll (HRPP) questions, we conducted a representative opinion survey of 1,000 adults in Lagos, and surrounding rural areas in partnership with a Nigerian survey firm. Explore key findings from the Nigeria HRPP below. A detailed report of our findings from the Poll and the interviews with local human rights groups will be availble in the fall of 2017.
