Youth Restiveness And Violence In Nigeria: A Case Study Of Youth Unrest In Ebiraland, Marietu S. Tenuche Oct 2009

Youth Restiveness And Violence In Nigeria: A Case Study Of Youth Unrest In Ebiraland, Marietu S. Tenuche

Marietu S Tenuche (PhD)

The youth in Nigeria are involved and in most cases are in the vanguard of violent conflicts that have occurred in different parts of the country. The study specifically examined the role of the youth in the intermittent bursts of violent that erupts in Ebira land North Central Nigeria. The study suggested possible remedies of this growing tendency. This descriptive research was carried out essentially through an analysis of relevant texts, documents and Research and Government Reports on the subject matter. The position in the study was that the abrogation of the traditional authority of the Clans as an instrument ...


Fear And Projection As Root Causes Of War, And The Archetypal Energies "Trust" And "Peace" As Antidotes, Carroy U. Ferguson Sep 2009

Fear And Projection As Root Causes Of War, And The Archetypal Energies "Trust" And "Peace" As Antidotes, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

I want to use this opportunity to discuss a phenomenon that continues to plague the human experience. It is called the game of war. War is perhaps the deadliest game that humanity has created. The conflict itself represents what appears to be opposing views about the way things should be. Each side believes that it is right and that its actions are justified. Each side therefore seeks to impose its views on the other or to defend its views against the other. Each side fears the other as an enemy and each side projects its fears onto its perceived “enemy.”

Gender Inequalities In Buha (Kigoma) And The Role Of Gender Mainstreaming To Alliviate Them, Conrad John Masabo Mr. Jun 2009

Gender Inequalities In Buha (Kigoma) And The Role Of Gender Mainstreaming To Alliviate Them, Conrad John Masabo Mr.

Conrad John Masabo Mr.

Gender issues and debates on gender are ever growing to dominate the local and international politics, law, economy and social policies. The debate are hot and even now penetrating to the formerly spheres that were for quite long left un-penetrated such as those structures of religion. Gender can be defined as the social determined roles and relations between males and females. In this regard, these social constructed roles and relations have resulted into tremendous gender inequalities that need to be addressed anew with a different methodology or strategy. They call for critical and purposely attention from anyone who hopes to ...


The State, Identity Mobilization And Conflict: A Study Of Intra Ethnic Conflict In Ebira Land, North Central - Nigeria, Marietu S. Tenuche May 2009

The State, Identity Mobilization And Conflict: A Study Of Intra Ethnic Conflict In Ebira Land, North Central - Nigeria, Marietu S. Tenuche

Marietu S Tenuche (PhD)

This study focused mainly on changes in the traditional institutions of governance occasioned by colonial rule and the impact of such changes on the organization of social life of erstwhile republican communities in Nigeria. These changes appeared to be the most fundamental and underlying cause of incessant violent conflicts and the seeming powerlessness on the part of State authorities to exert control and provide security to the communities. Relying essentially on content analysis of media reports, materials from the archives including reports by colonial officials on the Ebira community complimented largely with in-depth interviews carried out with leading actors in ...

Archetypal Energies, The Emergence Of Obama As A Practical Idealist, And Global Transformation, Carroy U. Ferguson Feb 2009

Archetypal Energies, The Emergence Of Obama As A Practical Idealist, And Global Transformation, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

During this time of change, AHP and kindred spirits on the edge have important roles to play. We are the keepers and nurturers of a transformative and evolutionary Vision for Consciousness and a more humane world. At issue is what I will call the “psychic politics” for global transformation, nurtured by practical idealism and the Archetypal Energies. In other writings, I have described Archetypal Energies as Higher Vibrational Energies, operating deep within our individual and collective psyches, which have their own transcendent value, purpose, quality, and “voice”, unique to the individual. We experience them as “creative urges” to move us ...

“De Cómo Fue Que Llegamos Hasta Aquí. La Adopción De Enfoques Teórico-Metodológicos Y Estrategias Pedagógicas Para El Análisis Político En La Universidad Nacional De Rosario”, Cristina Diaz

Cristina B. Diaz Mrs.

Cuánto de la historia reciente de las Cs. Sociales en Latinoamérica pervive -en tensión- en los lineamientos de las últimas versiones de nuestros programas de trabajo docente? En muchas el perfil evidencia un sesgo hacia el predominio de la problematización de la subjetividad y la temporalidad por inexistencia de espacios dedicados de modo estable a su examen con vistas a dar fundamento a modos particulares de asumir el lugar del análisis. Por otra parte, está claro que eludimos la formalización y las metodologías cuantitativas y que otorgamos sólo un peso relativo, mucho menor que el de materias similares en otras ...

Primitive Accumulation And Re-Appropriation Of The Information Commons, Wilhelm Peekhaus Jan 2009

Primitive Accumulation And Re-Appropriation Of The Information Commons, Wilhelm Peekhaus

Wilhelm Peekhaus

This paper suggests that LIS might benefit from critical political economy as a way of theorizing and responding to enclosures of information commons. The autonomist Marxist re-invigoration of ‘primitive accumulation’ offers a register for apprehending contemporary erosions of the commons. Autonomist Marxism also helps conceptualize resistance to enclosures.


Hamas Controlled Televised News Media: Counter- Peace, Allen Gnanam Dec 2008

Hamas Controlled Televised News Media: Counter- Peace, Allen Gnanam

Allen Gnanam

The hegemonic force of Hamas censored televised news media in Gaza, can not be fully comprehended and appreciated without recognizing the role of propaganda, censorship, and the historical context of the middle east. These 3 interrelated dimensions will be analyzed using functionalism, the mass society theory, the dominant ideology framework, the critical criminology framework, and the symbolic interactionist framework. Through censorship, Hamas news media outlets were able to unilaterally inject culturally relevant propaganda, into the minds of children and citizens. The hypodermic syringe model can be applied to the state controlled news media situation in Gaza, as the people of ...


The Science And Politics Of Ecological Risk: Bioinvasions Policies In The Us And Australia., Zdravka Tzankova Dec 2008

The Science And Politics Of Ecological Risk: Bioinvasions Policies In The Us And Australia., Zdravka Tzankova

Zdravka Tzankova

The US and Australia – western democracies with similar histories of public awareness on environmental issues and broadly comparable records of policy and regulatory action to safeguard environmental quality – have responded differently to one of the newest and most significant threats to marine bioidiversity: that of biological invasions mediated by the ballast water of commercial shipping. Each country has framed the same invasion risks differently for the purposes of policy and regulation: Australia has decided to use a more narrowly circumscribed, target-species-based approach whereas US policy and regulation takes a more comprehensive and precautionary approach. These somewhat surprising national regulatory choices ...


Nigeria And The Perennial Problem Of Governance: Explaining State Failure In The Midst Of Abundant Resources, Omololu Toluwanimi Omololu Dec 2008

Nigeria And The Perennial Problem Of Governance: Explaining State Failure In The Midst Of Abundant Resources, Omololu Toluwanimi Omololu

Omololu Michael FAGBADEBO

Nigeria’s abundant wealth is sufficient to make it one of the effective states in the African continent. However, the excess resources, like the sugar in the blood stream of a diabetic patient, serve no positive purpose for the teeming population. Poverty and hunger are the principal characters of the Nigerian state with attenuated crises affecting the socio-economic well - being of the people. While Nigeria ranks among the highest producers of crude oil in the world market, it also leads in the classification of countries in distress. Corruption and mismanagement of the abundant resources, coupled with the insatiable appetite of ...
