The study examines the extent to which ethnoreligious crises in Nigeria impacts on national security. It focuses on the Boko Haram terrorism in the northeast, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) violence in the south-south, and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) secessionist-oriented restiveness in the southeast and how they have undermined Nigeria"s national security, particularly human security. In this vein, it sought to provide answers to how threats to the survival of population, livelihood, and dignity of individuals and communities impact on national security. The study relied on the qualitative content analysis of secondary sources of data and utilized the relative deprivation theory. It argues that human security is key to Nigeria"s national security, as such, ethnoreligious crises threaten the survival of population, livelihood and dignity of individuals and communities which in the long run breeds more hostilities, underdevelopment, and high mortality and displacement rates. It, therefore, recommends the introduction of socioeconomic empowerment programs for job creation, and the prompt provision of humanitarian supports to victims.
This paper uses Johansen's cointegration methodology to estimate Sierra Leone's money long run demand function for the 1964-2005 period. It finds a stable long-run relationship between the quantity of real money balances and its determinants. Secondly, all the estimated coefficients have their expected signs. Additionally, as expected in economies with under-developed financial systems, Sierra Leone's long-run money demand function is unit income-elastic and interest-rate inelastic. Thus, the study provides support for the neoclassical money demand specification. Additionally, it reaffirms the central findings of Kallon (1992).
The argues that the Nigerian Government law which precludes the payment of compensatory claims to victims on grounds of sabotage violates the fundamental rights of third party victims
Few recent phenomena have proved as emblematic of our era, and as little understood, as globalization. Tying ethnography to structural analysis, Flexible Citizenship explores how political upheavals and global markets have induced Asian elite families, in particular, to blend strategies of migration, capital and cultural accumulation. She details how their transnational practices of flexibility manipulate different immigration regimes as well as schemes of multiculturalism in advanced liberal societies. Refuting claims about the clash of civilizations, Ong presents a clear account of the cultural logics of globalization as Asian peoples disperse and shape forms of Asia-Pacific modernity.
