Calling UK based Nigerians

ARE YOU OF NIGERIAN DESCENT AND LIVE IN THE UK?

Calling all Nigerians living in the UK to participate in a research study on the impact of financial transfers back home on infrastructure development

  • Nigeria is the sixth largest remittance receiving country in the world and received $21 billion in 2016
  • Nigerians abroad are making significant contributions to basic services and community infrastructure back home
  • The Nigerian government plans to further raise finance from its diaspora for infrastructure projects

But we need to know more about what factors influence diaspora financial flows to Nigeria, how the diaspora currently participates in infrastructure development and the impacts of diaspora financial flows within the wider context of infrastructure development in Nigeria.

Please complete a short anonymous survey at:

WWW.DEVELOPMENTCHOICES.CO.UK

This survey is being carried out as part of a PhD research on the impact of remittances and financial transfers to Nigeria by people of Nigerian descent who reside in the United Kingdom.  Please note that participation is anonymous, and the project has been approved by the Research Ethics Committee of SOAS University of London
