A new Africa Programme report examines the international dimensions of Nigerian crude oil theft and explores what the international community could do to tackle the problem.
The report assesses the scale of crude oil theft in Nigeria, analyses how stolen crude is exported and highlights the laundering of proceeds through global financial centres.
The Africa Programme carries out regular policy-focused research and analysis on a range of themes relating to Nigeria's extractive industry, its complex political landscape as well as maritime security and transnational organized crime in the wider Gulf of Guinea region.
