Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


"We are in an Islamic caliphate. We have nothing to do with Nigeria. We don't believe in this name" (Chothia, 2015).The political conflicts facing today's world are like well synchronised pyrotechnic displays responding to the sound-effect of the film Jaws. It produces complex narratives (fireworks) which are underscored by looming deep sea shark attacks (political instability). The danger is heightened by the fact that nobody knows where the shark will surface from, or who will be the next victim of its attack.
