Current Issue

Vol 7 No 2 (2022): KIU Journal of Humanities, Vol. 7 No. 2, June 2022

This issue of KIU Journal of Humanities touches on Development Administration, Creative Writing as well as Peace and Conflict Studies.

The first part of the Journal addresses issues in Development Administration such as Anti Corruption Policies, Globalization, Envronmental Policies, Fiscal Federalism, International Economic Relations, Deregulation of Educational Services and so on. One of the papers in this section reveals that government environmental policies in the study area in the last fifteen years have not been adequately implemented. It is therefore, recommended that the Federal Government should review government environmental policies in the study areas. The study also recommended the setting up of a new dedicated and centralized agency for effective flood risk management in Nigeria.

Section two explores issues in Peace and Conflict Studies such as Terrorism, Violent Protests, Military Coup Detat, Gender-Based Violence at Work Place and Minor Infractions of Tax Laws. Based on the result of the findings of its empiral Studies, one of the papers in this section recommends that both government and employers of labour should eliminate all forms of violence against women through reactivation of gender and equal opportunities bills and labour laws in Nigeria.

Papers in the last section are on Creative Writings. It is postulated in one of the papers that flaming devices have the tendency to infuriate the target(s) of the speech, and elicit negative reactions. The paper recommends that since the world has become a global village, discourses of prominent persons should be devoid of devices that have the propensity to infuriate the hearers and stimulate negative feelings and reactions. Another paper in this section also argues that there is monotony in their writing style and monotonous writing is ineffective writing style. The paper concludes by recommending possible solutions to effective and elegant writing for effective communication and enhanced performance in English.

On the whole, this issue of KIU Journal of Humanities features many empirical and theoretical based articles which can be of great benefit to every reader.
