    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 2,963 community members from key locations in and around the Maiduguri metropolitan area in Borno State, Nigeria. It presents data about individual victimization and exposure to violence, and how this relates to a respondent’s willingness to accept former Boko Haram associates who return to their communities. This findings report examines exposure to violence and various degrees of victimization – personal, familial, and community-level. Victimization refers to being subjected to conflict-related harm (physical violence, sexual violence, coercion, threats, and property damage). This data may be useful to UN and NGO partners working in the region to bolster their reintegration programming, as well as efforts to support the communities who receive former Boko Haram associates. These insights are unique as this data is collected in ongoing conflict, while reintegration is actively occurring 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.
