Abstract: In recent years, the European Union (EU) and its member states have paid allegiance to the goal of democracy and good governance in Nigeria. As elsewhere in Africa, this pursuit has met with limited success, as testified to by, for example, the fundamentally flawed 2007 Nigerian presidential, parliamentary, and state elections and continuing severe problems with corruption. Addressing the questions delineated in chapter I, this chapter examines how European democracy promotion has played out in the Nigerian case. To what extent has democracy been important for EU-Nigerian relations? How have EU countries and institutions worked on the ground to promote good governance and democratic practices? How united are ED countries in their pursuit of democracy in Nigeria? How is European democracy promotion perceived by Nigerian actors?
