    Abstract This report is based on data collected as part of two surveys: a survey of 275 local community leaders from the Maiduguri Metropolitan City (MMC) and Konduga areas of Borno State, conducted between September 2020 to June 2021, and a phone survey with a sample of 2,963 respondents representative of the population from Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC), Jere, and Konduga, which was conducted between December 2020 and March 2021. The report focuses on community leaders’ receptivity to returning Boko Haram associates. This policy brief focuses on how community leaders’ experiences of personal targeting, and the extent to which their community members participated in Boko Haram, affect their willingness to allow former members to return. These insights are unique as this data is collected in an ongoing conflict, while reintegration is actively occurring in the North East and communities are receiving those who exit Boko Haram and other armed groups.
