AfriHeritage Latest Publication. Out Soon!
A new book will soon be unveiled by the Institution. The book which is principally a fall-out of a conference hosted in 2017 by AfriHeritage with the theme: Peace Building and National Integration in Nigeria: The Political Economy of Separatism. Given the success of that conference in terms of the quality of papers presented, AfriHeritage decided to take it further by publishing some of the best papers presented at the conference.
The book takes a look and analyzes the cacophony of voices of agitations for self-determination, resource control, true federalism, etc. of the various nations/interest groups within the Nigerian polity in recent times. As an advocate for good governance policy, it goes ahead to proffer solutions on how these restless quests for separatism can be harnessed towards development, nation-building and a peaceful co-existence.
Edited by a team of seasoned academics of no mean intellectual repute led by Ufo Okeke-Uzodike, a professor of International Relations and Political Economy. The book is engaging, intellectually sound and provides a clear historical insight into a full grasp of some of the contemporary challenges bedeviling the Nigerian society, and by necessary implication, the African region. The book is certainly an excellent resource material and a valuable intellectual asset to policy actors, media practitioners, researchers, scholars and students in the areas of Peace and Conflict studies, development studies, Political Science, Social and Cultural Studies, etc. It is certainly a must read.
