New Imagination of Youth Agency

New Imaginations of Youth Agency: Boko Haram and the Innovative Gospel of
Terror in Nigeria
The proposed study examines the extent to which the Boko Haram insurgence in
Nigeria typifies an innovative religious imagination of redressing perceived social
exclusion and marginalization in Nigeria. It seeks to ascertain the extent to which the
sect is driven by imaginations of marginalization and exclusion by the youths and
other commoners in Northeastern Nigeria. The study which would be conducted in
three local government areas in Borno state in the Northeast Nigeria would adopt
methodological triangulation in attempting to provide answers to the research
questions raised and accomplish the goals of the study. Thus, it would utilize three
methods in gathering data. The open and axial coding (grounded theory) would be
employed by the researcher in the analysis to generate key analytical categories and
themes consistent with the research questions raised in the study.
