Our History

Grassroots Researchers Association (GRA) was inaugurated in Maiduguri, Borno State, in 2009 as a response to the insurgency in northeastern Nigeria. The organization was formally registered with the federal Corporate Affairs Commission in 2016. The goal was to create an evidence-driven resource for the government, development partners, academics, and researchers to make enlightened decisions on sustainable solutions.

Our Profile

As a non-profit and non-political organization, GRA’s primary purpose is conflict resolution through the provision of in-depth evidence-based research. We believe empirical data can be used to help provide context specific solutions to Nigeria’s troubled regions. Our independent analysis documents both the violence and the efficacy of government responses, and is designed to influence policymakers at the national, state and local government levels.
