H.R. 3833: To require a regional strategy to address the threat posed by Boko Haram.

Title: To require a regional strategy to address the threat posed by Boko Haram.

Introduced: Oct 26, 2015 (114th Congress)

Sponsor: Rep. Frederica S. Wilson [D-FL24]

Status: Referred to Committee - Forwarded by Subcommittee to Full Committee by Voice Vote .

Summary: This bill requires: the Department of State and the Department of Defense to develop jointly and submit to Congress a five-year strategy to help Nigeria, members of the Multinational Joint Task Force to Combat Boko Haram, and relevant partners to counter Boko Haram, and to assist Nigeria and its neighbors to address legitimate grievances of vulnerable populations in areas affected by Boko Haram; and the Director of National Intelligence to assess the willingness and capability Nigeria and regional partners to implement such strategy. It is the sense of Congress that lack of economic opportunity and access to education, justice, and other social services contributes to Boko Haram's ability to radicalize and recruit individuals.
