RESEARCH

PhD in Law ‘Rethinking the Rights based Approach for Education of  the Girl Child in Nigeria’

My research focuses on children’s rights, particularly the right to education for girls in Nigeria. My research examines through the lens of feminist theories and methodologies, the potentials as well as limitations of international human rights law in resolving conflicts that arise in specific context where certain culturally or socially sanctioned practices violate the rights to education for girls.
