    Abstract The Managing Exits from Armed Conflict (MEAC) Findings Report series seeks to put evidence about conflict transitions and related programming into the hands of policymakers and practitioners in real-time. The reports detail findings from MEAC studies in Nigeria and Colombia. The reports contain short overviews of findings (or emerging findings) across a wide range of thematic areas (such as climate-driven recruitment into armed groups) and include analyses on their political or practical implications for the UN, Member States, and local partners. This report is based on data collected from December 2020 to January 2021, as part of a phone survey with a randomized sample of 3,117 community members* from the Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC), Jere, and Konduga areas in Borno State, Nigeria. The report presents the results of three specific questions on gender-related dynamics. This data was gathered to help understand the context in which girls and women are recruited into armed groups, particularly the gender norms and gender expectations in the region. Insights into the roles of women and girls in society in North East Nigeria provide an important lens through which to view gender differences in conflict experiences, including within armed groups and armed forces, and reintegration trajectories after involvement. Divorced from this purpose, however, these data points are likely of interest to a range of practitioners – and policymakers – working in Borno State. Although there are only a few survey results outlined in this report, UNU-CPR is producing this overview as part of a standalone brief in order to get it into the hands of UN and NGO partners working in the region to address urgent humanitarian crises. The report ends with an examination of key policy and programmatic implications of these findings.
