    Abstract

    This article examines youths’ willingness to participate in three different forms of unrest (peaceful protests, low-level violence and oil-related crime, and militarized struggle) in the oil-rich Delta region of Nigeria, focusing among other factors on the role of schooling, educational attainments, earnings, and unemployment, and using data from over 1,300 respondents. It discusses what level of education matters the most for each outcome, the influence of higher formal education on willingness to participate by the unemployed, and the effect of marginal increases in income on the disposition of the employed towards participation. The results are compared across various sample specifications.
