Abstract

Militancy is a continuing process in many developing regions where entrepreneurial activities in the informal economy have the potential to transform lives leading to sustainable development through local initiatives. Often militancy originates in protest against global encroachment, and defending the livelihoods of local communities. Yet this leads to detrimental effects on such initiatives. The study focuses on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Niger Delta in Nigeria and looks at how the lessons learned may be used in other developing regions facing similar issues. Findings suggest how violent conflict resulting in adverse impact on enterprise development can be mediated by collective actions.
