Framing and Securitization in JOS Ethnic Conflicts

Adeleye Oluwafunke Adeola


Conflict is a reality of social life and it exists at all levels of the society. It is evident in the individual level and cuts across other levels up to the global level. It has remained the truly constant phenomenon in all spheres of life. Intrapersonal and interpersonal conflicts are equally important and are capable of far-reaching consequences. Despite the limited number of people involved in these forms of conflicts, the ripple effects of conflicts enable them to seep into other spectra thereby becoming cataclysmic. As such, conflict at any level should not be underestimated or handled with kid gloves. The carnage and intensity of protracted intragroup or intergroup conflicts are usually higher when compared with intrapersonal and interpersonal conflicts. The number of people involved in a conflict may be a direct or indirect influence on the course of the conflict. Diverse opinions and frames are formed by members of the conflicting parties.  Thus, ‘the more the people, the more the frames’ becomes applicable, though not as an exact representation but of expectation in any conflict.
