    Abstract This report is based on data collected from December 2020 to March 2021, as part of a phone survey with a representative sample of 3,471 community members from key locations in and around the Maiduguri metropolitan area (MMC) in Borno State, Nigeria. It presents data around community receptivity to and perceptions about individuals who exit Boko Haram. This data may be useful to UN and NGO partners working in the region to bolster their prevention and reintegration programming, as well as efforts to support the communities who receive former Boko Haram associates. This brief will focus on how people feel about someone returning to their community and will set the stage for subsequent briefs that will focus on social reintegration, and transitional justice and reconciliation preferences. These insights are unique as this data is collected in ongoing conflict, while reintegration is actively happening, and communities in and around Maiduguri are receiving those who exit Boko Haram and other armed groups. The report ends with an examination of key policy and programmatic implications of these findings.
