The first activity of the Centre was a round table organized in London in 1997 on the democratic future of Nigeria (then under military dictatorship). CDD’s activities have since grown not only in Nigeria but in the entire West African region and the rest of the continent. The Centre remains focused on capacity building work, policy analysis and advocacy, and as a research reference point on democratic governance, human security and people-centered development in the region. It has remained a critical bridge building institution between policy makers, civil society activists and academics in West Africa.
Project teams are coordinated by Head of Programmes along thematic areas.
