It seeks to act as an interface between theory and practice in nurse education. I chose this article because it reopens the debate about what constitutes 'valid evidence', calls for an equal appreciation of qualitative research, and reasserts the importance of integrating complex critical theories into the sphere of clinical practice, rather than being seduced by the dominant discourse of quantitative methods.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/140/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p95-97.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey610</dc:subject><dc:title>Review article on research discourses and their implications for nursing education</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Balsamo, Stella</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It highlights the distinction between deeper learning and surface reproduction of knowledge as it relates to creative writing studies. This has interesting implications, as there is a tendency, with creative writing studies, to focus on the finished product (the texts produced by students) rather than on the learning process and the relationship between the two. Light’s study is useful for helping me to formulate teaching strategies that bridge that divide.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/139/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p92-94.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Review article on conceptions of creative writing</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Pinnock, Winsome</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

There are several reasons for that: few students see statistics as a crucial part of their education as social scientists and their future profession, many hold certain prejudices against and misconceptions about statistics, or have a low level of numeracy or other learning issues. Of course, it is not (always?) students that are ‘responsible’ for such a perception of the subject. My job as a teacher of statistics should entail ‘deconstruction’ of those perceptions by making subject more interesting and stimulating, and by raising students’ motivation. In order to achieve such a task, it is necessary to understand students’ perceptions of the subject, which is the focus of the study by Reid and Petocz (2002).</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/138/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p88-91.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey510</dc:subject><dc:title>Review article on students' conceptions of statistics</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Uzelac, Gordana</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Much of what the modules I teach on are concerned with is developing student academic writing and one session per semester is dedicated to helping students understand how to cite sources, paraphrase and avoid plagiarism. Nevertheless, when it comes to assessing written work, plagiarism is often still there.&#13;
The chapter I have chosen to review looks at what Angelil-Carter believes students may be doing when they produce work that appears to be plagiarised.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/137/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p84-87.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey800</dc:subject><dc:title>Review article on plagiarism in student writing</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Turner, Marie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Not only does assessment determine to a large extent what the students do in order to demonstrate the results of their studies, but it also makes a profound impact on the learning process. This has long been established in literature. For example, Brown et al (1997) argued that assessment creates a strong motivation to learning. Biggs (1996) advocates 'constructive alignment' between learning activities and learning outcomes, in which assessment plays a crucial role.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/135/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p71-78.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Students' attitudes towards group presentation assessment : a survey at London Metropolitan University</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stephenson, Svetlana</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Uzelac, Gordana</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The discipline-based skills module combines generic and subject-specific skills teaching, links skills provision with the personal tutor system, and includes practical exercises to promote deep learning and improve study skills. One of the exercises involved familiarising students with the Psychology assessment criteria, and this work led to a project to develop tailored resources based on assessment criteria to support students and improve the quality of assessment.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/132/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p63-66.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Using assessment criteria to support student learning</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Harrington, Katherine</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Elander, James</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The technique involves measuring the gaps between what students want in terms of teaching delivery and what they actually receive, thereby enabling areas for improvement to be identified. Improving the effectiveness of classroom teaching so as to enhance the students’ learning experience is frequently viewed as a key to raising retention rates. Student feedback, just one of many indicators of teaching quality, plays a crucial role in teaching enhancement. Whilst informal methods are also useful for teaching appraisal, this project investigates a formal approach for obtaining student feedback. If a SERVQUAL type approach can be adapted using a fairly short questionnaire then it may prove a useful alternative / supplement to traditional survey methods for evaluating teaching effectiveness. The project focuses on several undergraduate and postgraduate business Marketing modules and was conducted to see whether the technique offers any particular benefits which the Department of Business and Service Sector Management may use in the future.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/126/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p28-34.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Exploring the use of a gap analysis approach for quantitative evaluation of teaching effectiveness</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Greenland, Steve</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It is seen as a key element in assisting new students to settle into, and prepare for, academic life. One of the learning outcomes is 'to help you [i.e. the student] integrate into University life and assist you to develop a range of academic and discipline-based skills and capacities that will enhance your academic and professional achievement'. The course was re-designed for autumn 2002, with the twin objectives of student integration and retention. A core team of staff who had been involved in a research project on the module the previous year (see www.criticallearning.co.uk) redesigned the course. The aim was to give the students a more explicit focus on engagement with study and being a student, one aspect of which was to include the use of Learning styles Inventories [LSI]. At the same time, the team is continuing and developing our research which has now extended from a limited perspective on the value of learning styles as a vehicle for involving students in discussion about learning, to a consideration of wider issues about engagement and adjustment to being a student in higher education.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/124/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p19-22.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Orienting students to higher education : a business example</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Holley, Debbie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Andrew, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Pheiffer, Gary</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Green, Miriam</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

That is not to say that it isn't finished, and published or presented. But it is still in a state of suspended animation, as an unfulfilled ambition - for unless its findings are applied to the students' experience and the results monitored, it has not fulfilled its purpose. The problem is that there are lots of incentives to motivate staff to reach the publication/presentation stage but nothing to encourage progress further - plus the knowledge that this second phase is one of the most difficult and frustrating activities in which to engage. Course organisers need to be persuaded, staff need to be motivated, findings need translating into detailed reforms, logistical obstacles need overcoming, statistics extracted from central services. Finally, there is the fear that the whole enterprise may fail and your reputation suffer: far easier to leave the research as an academic exercise with just enough ambiguity to allow face saving re-interpretations.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/122/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p11-14.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Closing the loop on educational research : using findings to improve the student experience</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Shaw, John Bryan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Drawing on data from a longitudinal study of undergraduate students that is being conducted at this university, this brief paper focuses on students’ constructions of their experiences at university. As Reay et al. (2002) discovered, for many ‘non-traditional’ students, studying in higher education is characterised by ‘struggle’, and this was something that has emerged as an important theme in the research reported here.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/121/1/InvestigationsInUniversityTeachingAndLearning_v1n1_p07-10.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1740-5106</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Experiences of struggle : findings from a longitudinal study</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Leathwood, Carole</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

ICTs have the potential to improve efficiency and productivity in many areas and, therefore, have received significant attention and investment in many countries. However, given the underdeveloped and inaccessible nature of developing economies, there has been some doubt about the relevance of this technology. There are concerns that instead of providing a level playing field, ICTs are further reproducing and entrenching underdevelopment in certain developing economies. The paper examines the opportunities offered by ICTs&#13;
infrastructure in developing economies with reference to the challenges faced by small businesses in Kurdistan region of Iraq. Currently, there is a limited number of studies in this area. The paper first  examines the IT infrastructure in the region of Iraq, and then assesses the potentials opportunities and challenges of e-commerce to small businesses in the region. It is revealed that the region is rapidly catching up ICT development, even though small businesses are yet to exploit fully the potentials of ICTs.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/118/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p101-119.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey650</dc:subject><dc:title>The potentials of ICT infrastructure in a developing economy : the case of small businesses in Kurdistan Region, Iraq</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lawrence, Japhet Eke</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2011-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

A living library, in its most rudimentary form, provides an opportunity for a patron to have a conversation with another human being based on that person’s life experience. In this context, the person relating their life experience is considered a living book. Living libraries have the ability to become a reference service that provides multiple viewpoints on complex issues. They benefit the user by offering both an intellectual and emotional experience. In practice, the living library can enhance an understanding of various worldviews by disparaging stereotypes and engaging community conversations that give rise to an awareness of human dignity.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/116/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p83-92.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Libraries by the people, for the people : living libraries and their potential to enhance social justice</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stewart, Kristine N.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Richardson, Benjamin E.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2011-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

A basis for this paper was established from September 2010 to April 2011 through examination of a global range of online publicly accessible LIS program information. First stage analysis indicates that LIS education language appears to treat digital labour reductively; it fails to account for the labour conditions that frame the work. A tightening of the search examined evidence of critical teaching and learning of digital labour that allow for determinations of how the digital work environment relates to library labour rights and movements. This resulted in a scan of English language and translated information for a total of 121 individual LIS programs. Several trends emerged, which suggest that digital labour is generally, and most often out of necessity, inherently connected to other issues studied in LIS programs. A potential, yet unborn, paradigm in LIS education negates the basic notion of digital labour movement. Recommendations include research into the potential value of teaching and learning about the theory and practice of digital labour, a more sufficient and sophisticated approach to digital labour within LIS education in foundations courses, and a proposed set of possible advanced topics for teaching and learning in LIS education. Limitations of this topical exploration include what might be explained by the unknown factor of what is actually unseen from publicly accessible documents. To test the meaning of our first-stage work, future inquiry might involve interviews with teachers and looking into classroom communication of learners to see how the idea of digital labour is being addressed by them even if it is only in the most subtle manner.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/115/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p71-82.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey370</dc:subject><dc:title>Digital labour shortage : a new divide in library and information studies education?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Worman, Anthony</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Samek, Toni</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2011-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

In this paper I will examine the link between inequality, social class and the use of public libraries. I will also build on ground breaking research in the UK - Open to All? The Public Library &amp; Social Exclusion (Muddiman et al, 2000) - and cutting edge good practice in Canada via the Working Together Project (2004-2008). I will outline the practical steps which are required to develop needs-based and community-led library services.My overall theme is Public Libraries &amp; Social Justice (Pateman &amp; Vincent, 2010) and I will explore some of the challenges and barriers to creating socially inclusive libraries and how these can be overcome. I will provide a blue print and a road map for producing strategies, structures, systems and cultures which enable local communities to be fully involved and engaged in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of their library services.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/114/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p57-70.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Public libraries, social class and social justice</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Pateman, John</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2011-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

While public libraries in the United States utilize measurement tools to plan socially responsive services and programs to address poverty and literacy in their communities, these initiatives are not connected to MDG targets and indicators. Similarly, scorecards and quality of life reports compiled by municipalities and nonprofit groups, while they might investigate community social problems are not linked to socially responsive library services or the wider MDGs. This article suggests that by re-imagining data collection methods coupled with active community partnership, U.S.public libraries have a significant role in actualizing the MDGs in terms of working local social conditions by the deadline of 2015.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/113/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p29-55.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>True community : connecting the Millennium Development Goals to public library services in the United States</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Maret, Susan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2011-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The use of information materials in alternative format by the visually impaired is limited by availability. The study investigates the availability and use of information materials in alternative format by persons with visual impairment in selected libraries in Nigeria. The study is a survey. Fourteen purposively selected libraries were used based on the population of their visually impaired users who make use of alternative formats. Using a stratified proportionate random sampling technique, the chosen libraries were stratified into Non-governmental organizations, public, tertiary institutions and secondary schools. A structured questionnaire and an observation schedule were used for data collection. Out of the 563 copies of questionnaire administered, 401 (71.3%) were successfully completed and used for the study. Result revealed that braille materials (69.9%) and talking books/audio recordings (43.5%) were not readily available in the libraries. Large prints are not available (79.3%). Braille materials had high level of utilization (x=4.44; SD=1.21). Information material availability had significant positive relationship with use (r=0.224; p&lt;0.05). Information materials availability in the libraries cannot ensure and sustain adequate utilisation levels. The study recommends increased transcription, balanced collection of alternative formats and resource sharing.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/111/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p05-18.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:title>Availability and use of information materials by persons with visual impairment in Nigeria</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Adetoro, 'Niran</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2011-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

As 2011 comes to a close, it seems that the entire world is fighting something - but what can we truly name as a success? At the time of this writing, we have seen governments overthrown in Egypt, Tunisia, and there have only been partial (if that) resolutions to the problems in the Middle East - violent eruptions have occurred periodically since the Arab Spring and true democracy isn‘t yet in place. Around the world, the Occupy Movement is fully underway, illustrating the breadth of the struggle against the capitalist machine that separates the 1% from the 99% - the very small number of haves against the languishing middle and lower classes. It seems that democracy is elusive around the world, even as people who turn a blind&#13;
eye to the realities of the poor celebrate its triumph. This issue is the result of an international exchange that occurred last summer, when Melanie Brooks and I took twelve students from the University of Missouri to England and Scotland to visit libraries and learn how libraries in the United Kingdom are working with, and for, social change in the midst of an economic crisis. One focus of the trip was social justice, specifically related to libraries and information work. Class readings covered social change in both the British and U.S. contexts. We were fortunate to be able to talk to librarians who had participated in the Quality Leaders Project - Skills for a Globalised World: Relevant Skills for Public Library Staff at the Barking Learning Centre. We participated in a workshop led by John Vincent and Anne Harding, and visited several other libraries that had won CILIP‘s Libraries Change Lives Award. In the end, though, what affected the students most deeply wasn‘t planned; the riots that erupted in the boroughs of London while we were there explicitly addressed the concepts of social exclusion in British society that we had been reading about. We moved out of London and watched buildings burn on TV for the next several nights, from our rooms in Leeds, Edinburgh, and York. The riots, spurred by anger about inequalities and cultural differences, rattled our nerves and provided food for thought that we hadn‘t anticipated.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/110/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v4n2_p01-03.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:title>What’s information got to go with it?

This issue carries a discussion between Katy Hickman, Senior Producer at BBC World Service Religion and Ethics and Prof. Abdul Sheriff, formerly Professor of History at the University of Dar es Salaam and Director of Zanzibar Museums and the author of forthcoming titles, Dhow Cultures of the Indian Ocean: Cosmopolitanism, Commerce and Islam and The &#13;
Early Dhow Culture in the Indian Ocean: From the Periplus to the Portuguese. The context of this debate is BBC Radio’s "Return to Zanzibar" programme in their series, Heart &amp; Soul. Setting the scene is Katy Hickman’s contact with Prof. Sheriff in which she enclosed an early outline of the programme. This is followed by Prof. Sheriff’s response which raises various key issue of relevance to the study of Africa. This is followed by Katy Hickman’s response which explains how the final version was influenced by points&#13;
raised by Prof. Sheriff. Also included is a later piece by the presenter of the programme, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. While not part of this discussion, the latter is included to provide the presenter’s perspective.

This article identifies another ramification of the terms ‘corruption’ and/or ‘prebendalism’ within the prism of the Nigerian&#13;
political culture. Whilst acknowledging the importance of the ‘grand narrative’ in the conceptual interpretation of the term, this article seeks to go beyond this state-centric analysis by invoking ‘spoilization of the system’ approach to explain how informalized nature of corruption and other acts of societal impropriety not least, financial fraud tagged ‘419’, ‘oil bunkering’ etc operating at the micro and indeed unofficial level of the state impact negatively on state-society relations. This article examines the manifestations of the ‘spoilization of the system’. Hence, the aim of the article is not to underscore the superficiality of the prevalence of the state-centric discourse on spoil politics in Nigeria or to enunciate a global theorizing; rather it attempts to explore the neglected conceptual relevance and context peculiarities that fit into the dynamics of unofficial corruption of the state as an additional discourse to the on-going debate on corruption in the Nigerian state.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/107/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p165-175.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Corruption in Nigeria : conceptual and empirical notes</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Mustapha, Mala</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

From the US Florida electoral crisis of 2000 to the Orange Revolution in Ukraine in 2004/2005, which was staged to protest perceived electoral malpractice, the story has been that of the inability of electoral bodies to conduct free and fair elections devoid of electoral malpractice, coupled with incompetence and numerous electoral flaws, unfairness and injustice. Although, Nigeria’s case of electoral irregularities may not be unique, their magnitude makes it a good subject of historical investigations. This work examines the impact of the illegal use of money, weapons and thugs as aspects of electoral irregularities in the conduct of elections in Nigeria between 1999 and 2007.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/106/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p151-163.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>‘Gold, guns &amp; goons’ : the complexity of electoral irregularities in Nigeria, 1999-2007</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Osiki, Omon Merry</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The continent’s governing class is demonstrating dramatic behaviour in achieving and sustaining power by all means possible. In this article, recent experience in Nigerian 2007 general elections and the upcoming 2011 elections are recalled to argue that rival elements of the governing class are engaged in a vicious circle of subordinating one another, albeit with no threat to their hegemony. The paper appropriates Michael Foucault’s concepts of ‘new economy of power  relations’ and ‘legitimation’ as well as Antonio Gramsci’s terminology of ‘subordination and  hegemony’ to demonstrate that, by both design and default, dominant form and structures of power are reproduced and sustained by the governing class. The paper shows that dominant elites (incumbents and their allies) use state structures and an emerging single-party machinery to get an upper hand over opposition elites.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/105/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p135-149.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Hegemony and subordination : governing class, power politics and electoral democracy in Nigeria</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Shettima, Abba Gana</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Existing studies emphasize that the Kurds were subjected to a systematic forced assimilation campaign by the new Kemalist state. This paper stresses that the formation of Turkey after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire is the root to understanding the ideological foundation of the Turkish state’s denial of the Kurds, their history, language and even their existence. This has huge implications for Turkey’s claims to secular democracy, its regional stature and aspirations to join the European Union.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/104/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p127-134.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Mountain Turks : state ideology and the Kurds in Turkey</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Sagnic, Ceng</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The major constraint to Iraq’s statebuilding project is the misfit between identity and sovereignty of the state in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country where the construction of a new national identity (i.e. Iraqi) is sought at the expense of eradicating other existing identities (i.e. Kurd, Assyrian). The Iraqi state is seeming foisting the identity of the ruling majority Shiite-Arabs composing 65% of the population, thus marginalizing the identity of minorities such as the Kurds who constitute 20% of the population. Further, Iraq’s religious diversity and, precisely, the sectarian cleavage between Shiite and Sunni Muslims, impose serious challenges to the notion of democracy and democratic transition. This paper shows that in Iraq, democracy and nation-building have resulted in majority rule in a way that marginalizes minorities and dissenting voices. The processes of state building and democratization, it is argued, are intertwined and their challenges overlap and interlinked, making democracy a contested subject in the Iraqi context.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/103/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p117-125.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Iraq : a deeply divided polity and challenges to&#13;

Lack of deep-understanding of the Iraq’s culture had led to the former US administration to equate the demise of Saddam with the demise of totalitarianism. The presence of Saddam was a great obstacle of democracy, but his removal changed little. Saddam and his former like-minded people created a culture capable of producing as many dictators as it wants. This essay argues that Iraq’s political culture is highly undemocratic; and thus the future of democracy in the country is bleak. It proves so by highlighting the most important incompatible elements of Iraq’s culture with democracy.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/102/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p107-115.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Iraq’s democratic dilemmas : from entrenched dictatorship to fragile democracy</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Abdulla, Namo</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It questions the familiar argument that oil wealth is a catalyst for democracy and development, and argues that in the context of the Middle East, oil wealth appears to hamper transition towards democratization. This is because oil revenues are used by the states to maintain the authoritarian monarchies through the allocation of large portions of state budget to defense expenditure and state security apparatuses that are ostensibly used to quell clamors for democratization and resist external pressures. The article also underlines the importance of hydrocarbon energy for the economies of Western superpowers and the way these powers cope with meeting their energy needs by all means possible. It is argued that Western countries face a moral predicament in meeting their strategic oil needs from a region seen as&#13;
predominantly undemocratic and undemocratizing.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/101/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n2_p95-105.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>A critical analysis of the role of oil in hindering transition towards democracy in the Middle East</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ahmed, Raed Asad</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This is of immense benefit for developing countries and Nigeria in particular because of prospects accruing from it. Library as an indispensable agent in national development through provision of relevant information has a key role to play. The onus rests on Nigerian libraries to generate much more local content to meet local and global information needs. The paper discusses issues in the creation of institutional&#13;
repositories with local content from library perspective, focusing more on ways to enhance creation of local content, inherent challenges and suggestions on the way forward for Nigerian Libraries.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/91/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n1_p59-68.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:title>Issues and challenges in the creation of institutional repositories with local content : critical reflections</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Salawu, Bahsiru Akanni</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Similarly, it is clear that improved availability and communication of good information could have helped prevent the types of consumer and investor reactions which spread the crisis around the globe today. Drawing on a range of existing sources, this paper considers the impact of information failure and the role of information professionals in the economic crisis. It then examines how information professionals can make an important contribution to economic recovery and sets out recommendations for the profession. The paper concludes that unless information professionals play a more proactive role in&#13;
making good economic and financial information readily accessible, the risk of recurrent economic crises will be increased.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/90/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n1_p51-57.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey650</dc:subject><dc:title>The role of information professionals in global economic crisis</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Al-Suqri Waseem Afzal, Mohammed Nasser</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Al-Kindi, Salim Saeed</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Al-Sarmi, Abdullah Humood</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Businesses both large and small need information to succeed in today's rapidly changing environment, they need to be able to process data and use information effectively when conducting their day-to-day operations. The choice of SMEs as the main context of this paper is not arbitrary. It is chosen because of SMEs make significant contribution to most economies of the World. SMEs are extremely important to many countries. In some&#13;
countries this group of organisations provide the foundation for the entire economy; their contribution to the economy cannot be over emphasised. Given the strategic importance of the SME sector to growth and job creation and the large base of Internet users, the success of SMEs gaining business leverage from the Internet is critical to the future of global economies. It is argued that SMEs stand to benefit significantly from the opportunities that Internet can offer to businesses. Therefore, the use of the Internet is widely seen as critical for the competitiveness of SMEs in the emerging global market.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/89/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n1_p37-50.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey650</dc:subject><dc:title>The strategic business value of internet usage in&#13;

However, there has been some doubt about the relevance of ecommerce for developing countries. The absence of adequate basic infrastructural, socio-economic and the lack of government national ICT strategies have created a significant barrier in the adoption and growth of e-commerce in developing countries. The study shows that, in order to understand the adoption and diffusion of e-commerce in developing countries, cultural issues need to be considered. In this paper, we present and discuss these issues hindering e-commerce adoption in developing countries.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/88/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n1_p23-35.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey650</dc:subject><dc:title>Barriers to e-commerce in developing countries</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Lawrence, Japhet Eke</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2010-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

It is equally premature to pretend that all countries are beneficiaries and, therefore, there are no victims of the globalisation. This is particularly true of developing world which is largely lagging behind in the so-called "digital divide". In this paper and the articles presented in the present Volume of Information, Society and Justice, it is argued that a number of challenges bedevil the desire by developing countries to enjoy equal access to the opportunities of globalisation and information technology. It is also argued that both globalisation and information technology reproduce and reinforce global inequality and hierarchy dominated by specific parts of the world.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/86/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v3n1_p01-09.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>Coming to terms with a wired world?&#13;

Such conversation is varied, but thanks to emails, the editors are able to respond to their global audience. An example of such conversation is reported in this article. In January 2008, a few days after the publication of the first issue of ISJ, the Editorial Board received an email from Eddie D'Sa, a founding member of the New Diaspora, the editor of Goan Digest and a community activist who congratulated the ISJ team for establishing the journal. D'Sa's comment and ISJ's response (from Shiraz Durrani) are reproduced in this article.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/85/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p279-281.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey070</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>The role of ISJ : recent conversations</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1218</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Formation of consortium appears to be the most viable means for library cooperation. This work briefly traces the history of library cooperation in the UK, South Africa and Nigeria. It also examines the elements, benefits and challenges for consortium formation as crucial for library networking and resource sharing. Finally, it is concluded that libraries must face up to the reality of resource and information synergy in order to live up to the expectations of of clients and society.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/82/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p255-262.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:title>Networking and resource sharing in library and information services : the case for consortium building</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Okeagu, George</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Okeagu, Blessing</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1215</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

SMEs are extremely important to many countries and their contribution to economy cannot be over emphasized. They are socially and economically&#13;
important, since they represent 99 % of all enterprises in the EU and provide around 65 million jobs and contribute to entrepreneurship and innovation. Given the strategic importance of the SME sector to growth and job creation and the large base of current Internet users as well as potential users, the success of SMEs gaining business leverage from the Internet is critical to the future of global economies (Lawrence, 2002). It could be argued that SMEs stand to benefit significantly from the opportunities and benefits that Internet offers to businesses. Therefore, the use of the Internet is widely seen as&#13;
critical for the competitiveness of SMEs in the emerging global market.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/81/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn2%20p221-235.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey380</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey650</dc:subject><dc:title>The Internet and Small to Medium-sized Enterprises: Research Notes</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Lawrence, Japhet Eke</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2009-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The questionnaire method was adopted. Responses were collated and analyzed. The study revealed that inmates have a variety of information needs which are not adequately met. It noted that Library stocks in the prison libraries are grossly inadequate and poorly managed. It also revealed that the collections are managed by staff without training in information management and handling. It noted inadequate attention from government and society. The study recommends readership promotion campaigns, organized library visits by the library association to prisons, as well as provision of outreach services to inmates by nearby public libraries.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/80/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p245-254.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>An appraisal of library services provision to prison inmates in Nigeria</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Omagbemi, Clement O.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Odunewu, Abiodun O.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1214</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Man is the subject of economic, historical and political processes in the society. But one major “monster” that perpetually haunts mankind is poverty. Its effects are more amplified in Africa where war, backwardness, distress, starvation and instability have almost become parts of the people’s culture. As a result, the term “Africa” seems to be synonymous with poverty and backwardness. To many, the continent is a conglomeration of nations&#13;
swimming aimlessly in abject poverty, with its activities being monitored by the superpowers. This paper identifies what I choose to call “pauperism” as the main cause of the socio-economic problems that threaten the attainment of peace in Africa. Pauperism, here, is the doctrine or orientation that encourages policies that aimed at keeping the poor perpetually in a degrading position in order to create and maintain a gap between&#13;
him and the rich. This is done in many ways; through government policies, economic means and domination in various forms. Essentially pauperism is a multi-dimensional phenomenon. At the international level, pauperism consists in the impoverishment of some developing countries by some privileged individuals or countries. This is done mostly by making such pauperized nations politically unstable, economically stagnant, and&#13;
disallowing them space for meaningful development. I therefore posit that until this monstrous attitude is changed, there would be no peace, social justice, stability and socioeconomic development in Africa. Therefore, this paper proposes the adoption of “depauperization” as an effective antidote to the epidemics of poverty and instability in Africa. This device depicts a paradigm shift which will involve both the Africans and the different powers concerned. The change must be total and final, and its principles must&#13;
be enforceable across the globe in order to guarantee its effective implementation, with a view to making peace a permanent feature in Africa.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/74/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn2%20p183-195.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>De-pauperization: a panacea for African socio-political instability</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ogunkoya, Jolley Oladotun</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2009-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The paper shows that the Nigerian labour is a forerunner of socio-economic and pro-democracy struggles in the country, providing the foundation for efflorescence civil society. The paper shows that the state played a key role in reproducing socio-economic and political inequality and generating, in the process, anti-state, anti-hegemonic activity from trade unions and other associational groups. In response to anti-state activities, the state intervened in the internal politics of these organisations. Where necessary, the state invented repressive laws to impose “order”. In confronting difficult circumstances created by the repressive state – structural adjustment, retrenchment and militarism – the Nigerian labour movement demonstrated both organisational strength and weakness, whilst also forging difficult alliances in confronting a common enemy – the state.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/73/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn2%20p165-181.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>Organised labour and democratic struggles in Nigeria</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2009-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This fact sheds light on the roles played by Michael Imoudu and Adams Oshiomhole in the struggles for national liberation and the advancement of the welfare of the working class and the masses of the Nigerian state through their selfless labour activism, organization of series of national strikes and mass protests that sometimes exposed them to risks and state brutality. This article offers a historical reflection of the roles played by both Imoudu and Oshiomhole in the history of labour unionism and activism in Nigeria and interrogates the impact of socio-economic forces and the consciousness of a humble background as indigenes of Edo minority group in Nigeria and how this helped to galvanize their relentless struggle for the enthronement of justice, equity and wellbeing for the helpless workers in Nigeria. It argues that both Imoudu and Oshiomhole were very important in creating the necessary impetus among the working class in their struggle against oppressive and exploitativesocio-economic and political conditions in the Nigerian state.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/72/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn2%20p153-164.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>Personalities and labour activism in Nigeria: the&#13;

Such policies include: privatization and commercialization of public institutions and services, incessant fuel hikes, retrenchments of workers and implementation of prescribed conditions and unfavourable policies of international monopoly finance&#13;
capitalist institutions, etc. This paper investigates the activities of the Nigeria Labour Congress, as a credible opposition to the ruling party in Nigeria. It examines the conditions that necessitated this additional responsibility on the NLC as well as the nexus between credible opposition and workers’ welfarism. The paper argues that the&#13;
emergence of the Labour Party in the country’s political landscape and its relative acceptance is underpinned by the functionality of its platform as the “mouthpiece of the masses.”</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/70/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn2%20p139-152.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>Trade unionism and governance in Nigeria:&#13;

The debate starts with a message sent by Shiraz Durrani to UNESCO on its "Memories of the World Programme". He also circulated this message to a number of people active in the field of Pan Africanism, including Ali Abdul Yekin. This led to the exchange in this paper, which was compiled by Shiraz Durrani.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/62/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p209-220.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey960</dc:subject><dc:title>Debating and documenting Africa : a conversation</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Durrani, Shiraz</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1208</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Though the all-too familiar derogatory metaphors (such as Kaplan's 'the coming anarchy [1994]) are slightly reversed, particularly since the 2000s, following substantial democratic transformation, the continent continues to experience spates of intra- and inter-state wars with impact on the prospects of peace, stability and security in the continent. Presently there are about 20 active wars in the continent, and uncountable number of low intensity conflicts - ranging from resource-related, communal, and politically-motivated to ethno-religious. The paper explores Track-One, Track-Two and Multi-Track Diplomacy as a concept for framework for understanding conflict management peacebuilding in Africa. It also seeks to provide a blueprint for conflict management and peacebuilding in Africa, using Nigeria as a case model.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/59/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p185-202.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Conflict management and peacebuilding in Africa : the role of state and non-state agencies</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Abdulrahman, Imran</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1206</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This work demonstrates how the city was made by people and also how the activities of people have been a major threat to the city. In addition, the paper has shown that what is striking to a visitor to Lagos is the site of a city marked by filthiness and degradation with slums and squatter settlements. This situation with its evident health hazards are now monumental that they are almost out of control. These problems are a result of fundamental neglect and poverty of urban governance. The collapse of critical public infrastructure such as roads, water, sewage and drainage systems, power supply and importantly, housing, essential for households and business concerns, increasingly characterize Lagos metropolis, thus making it a villagized city.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/57/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn1%20p95-109.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>Lagos: the ‘villagized’ city</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Emordi, E.

gave birth to the multicultural Dublin of today. It critically explores the reasons&#13;
for the delayed industrialisation of Ireland, including the role of the Catholic&#13;
Church and the specific nationalist forces which dominated the polity and&#13;
economic thinking during the early years of the new Independent Irish State. The specific forces which gave birth to the Celtic Tiger and oiled the boom decade are outlined and the role of the EU, US multinational corporations and petro dollar recycling are evaluated. Ireland, historically the subject of emigration, has now experienced immigration for the first time in its history. The small and developing ethnic media are examined, along with the wider cultural engagement by the ‘new Irish’.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/56/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn1%20p63-93.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>Modern Ireland: multinationals and&#13;

Paradoxically, the prevalence of high-intensity conflicts (HIC) or complex politica emergencies (intra-state wars, inter-state wars and insurgencies), which engulfed the region in the 1990s, has obscured an equally important form of conflict: low-intensity conflicts (LIC). So far, a significant proportion of intellectual and policy energy has been channeled on the former, as buttressed by the intellectual paradigm of "resource war" theory, and a social and political praxis in the form of humanitarian intervention in Sierra Leone and Liberia. In this article, we seek to fill the gap in the literature and policy discourses by drawing attention to farmer-pastoralist conflict as an example of low-intensity conflict.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/55/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p163-184.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey960</dc:subject><dc:title>Farmer-pastoralist conflict in West Africa : exploring the causes and consequences</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Shettima, Abba Gana</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1205</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Wacquant in Urban Outcasts, this article examines the ways in which problems of relegation, territorial stigmatisation and unemployment emerge from the narratives of French writers of Algerian origins in the last twenty years. It proposes a reading of November 2005 clashes in French cities reconstructing historical networks of social and cultural reasons that contributed to ignite them. Semi-fictional accounts of immigrants’ life in the banlieues are a privileged source of information about the social distress that nurtured the explosion of urban violence. Reading between the lines of these representations helps grasping what happens underneath the surface of an overexposed situation of inequality that periodically morphs into violence.&#13;

Although the area affected by poverty has shrunk since the 1880s, there is a core area that shows persistence of poverty throughout. One notable feature of change has been a substantial shift between the censuses of 1971 and 2001, which may be explained by changes in the housing market and the local community. Data handling and sampling issues are reviewed with a view to a future study filling the gaps in the longitudinal survey.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/52/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn1%20p37-45.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:title>Measuring the persistence of poverty&#13;

It is a means of gaining international relevance. The Nigerian Government has recognized the need to square up to the challenges of ICT revolution in order to bridge the digital divide being experienced by the country presently as well as transforming Nigeria into an ICT-driven and knowledge-based society. To this effect, several projects/programmes have been put in place, including the creation of virtual libraries in Nigeria. This paper explores the ICT situation in Nigeria. It highlights the various activities of the government in relation to ICT development and progress recorded so far. Finally, recommendations are made on the way forward for Nigeria.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/51/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p115-135.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>ICTs for sustainable development : the Nigerian experience</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Salawu, Bahsiru Akanni</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The contribution of small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is extremely important to the economy of many countries and their contribution cannot be over-emphasised. SMEs account for more than 50% of private-sector employment in the UK and currently are contributing most of the private sector employment growth. Information technology, particularly the Internet, has the potential to radically change the way business is conducted, offering a competitive edge and a gateway to the global marketplace. Although much has been claimed about the potential benefits of the use of the Internetin businesses, there appears to be little evidence at present to indicate the actual level of usage in SMEs. In order to address this, this paper presents the results from a survey of UK SMEs between March and June 1999. The survey gives a current picture of how SMEs are using the Internet and its technology, including the benefits, the issues and the impact of use on business activities.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/50/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p99-113.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey650</dc:subject><dc:title>The challenges and utilization of e-commerce : use of Internet by small to medium-sized enterprises in the United Kingdom</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Lawrence, Japhet Eke</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1202</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Common mind-boggling questions include: why are large swathes of the world so deprived and insecure? What are the factors mitigating against global equality? How and why are ICTs appropriated by some parts of the world, yet virtually non-existant in others? Are there any prospects for the developing world? These questions frame the focus of the article, and articles and comementaries that follow. While the picture may look gloomy, it is noted that there is scope for hope and change. All contributions in this Volume [volume 1, number 2] share this conviction: they are critically diagnostic, yet optimistically presscriptive.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/49/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n2_p93-98.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>ICTs, development and peace : spectrum for constructive debate and engagement</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-06</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.1201</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Its captures the political and intellectual precursors to the current global development and information order. We argue that the current atmosphere, chaotic and unjust as it is, contains both challenge and opportunities, particularly for countries and communities that are often constructed as victims of an unjust world. We then identify the key agenda for research, activism and debate for scholars, activists and development practitioners, as exemplified by the principles, visions and objectives of a newly formed international peer-review journal – Information, Society and Justice – based in London.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/47/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n1_p03-16.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Information, Society and Justice: Towards a Proactive&#13;

This article argues the importance of community media, and particularly community radio, in providing such communities with opportunities to express their cultures and concerns. Its main focus is London, whose size and geography pose special problems for broadcast coverage, but comparisons are made with other European capital cities – Budapest, Cardiff and Stockholm - and the historical legacy of London’s problems, which has defeated other attempts in the past to use radio to meet the needs of London communities, is briefly summarised. The research which is reported is ongoing; at the time of writing a series of media policy workshops is being planned with the hoped-for involvement of the London Mayor’s office and of local authorities. Policy interventions are never final, so this is an account of work in progress.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/44/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice%20v2%2Cn1%20p5-20.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey360</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey380</dc:subject><dc:title>Finding and funding voices : the London experience</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Lewis, Peter M.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2008.2102</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

establishment of the new London governance structure in 2000. The objectives set out by Ken Livingstone were ambitious. However while the quantity of new homes built in London has increased, the type of housing built does not meet the targets set for affordable housing and for family sized housing, most homes completed being relatively small and expensive flats for sale.

liberal democratisation and ethnic politics in Africa, based on a critique of an&#13;
‘empirical’ research work carried out on the subject matter by Smith (2000: 21-&#13;
39). In this work, Smith uses a sophisticated variety of quantitative techniques&#13;
to engage the debate on the causal association between three key variables:&#13;
political liberalisation, democratisation and ethnic conflict in Africa. A seeming&#13;
innovation of Smith is the use of a less familiar method (regression analysis)&#13;
amongst scholars of African politics to advance a positivistic argument for an&#13;
intellectual subject matter that has so far been subjected to constructivist&#13;
explanations. This article argues that (a) Smith’s quantitative work can and do&#13;
complement existing qualitative work, particularly amongst African and&#13;
Africanist scholars. Yet, it argues that (b) Smith’s technique and arguments are&#13;
so riven with sophisticated statistical formulae and abstract analysis that they&#13;
do not lend themselves to easy comprehension. The article therefore (c)&#13;
questions the exclusive utility of a positivist approach in studying African&#13;
politics – a terrain awash with subjective realities and (d) recommends the&#13;
importance of mixing methods, as a means of ensuring methodological&#13;
synergy.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/42/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n1_p49-60.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Liberal Democratisation and Ethnic Politics in Africa:  Methodological Reflections</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tar, Usman A.</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2007.1106</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

IT has given new meanings to the transmission, dissemination and storage of information; whereas globalisation is reducing the importance of geographical boundaries. Libraries as an important social institution have been affected by these changes. Information retrieval, information storage and information transmission are the core competencies of the libraries. Digital age characterized by efficient graphic user interface, &#13;
digital imaging, efficient transfer and storage of texts, is presenting important challenges for the libraries. Information privacy, copyrights, and information security are some of the challenging issues faced by the libraries in digital age. This paper is an attempt to present as well as to discuss the implications of these issues so that strategies can be devised to address them effectively and efficiently.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/40/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n1_p43-48.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey020</dc:subject><dc:title>Digital age : challenges for libraries</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Al-Suqri Waseem Afzal, Mohammed Nasser</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>DOI: 10.3734/isj.2007.1105</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

CBB 2007 prompted a national debate on issues of ‘race’, racism as well as multiculturalism. Further, the events on the reality television show sparked an international diplomatic incident, during Gordon Brown’s (then Chancellor of the Exchequer) visit to India. This paper attempts to outline two key areas that should be rooted in the understanding of the discourse surrounding the CBB 2007 controversy: multiculturalism and transnationalism. It is proposed that these two areas provide an understanding of the increasing legitimacy given to social segregation of ethnic minority communities since 9/11 and 7/7. The paper suggests that the contemporary understandings of multiculturalism and social segregation have to be foreground, when analysing entertainment programmes such as CBB 2007.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/39/1/Channel%204.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey380</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey790</dc:subject><dc:title>Channel 4 and Celebrity Big Brother 2007: Multiculturalist or Segregationist?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Fazal, Shehina</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Far from ‘foisting’ magazines (whether they be print or online) on an unsuspecting 'market gap' of women, this paper shows that where ‘gaps’ in the market are identified, the translation of this into a product that women will want to read is much more difficult. Instead, it is argued that the economic practices of magazine publishing can only be understood when we also think about them in terms of the cultural conditions in which they exist.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/38/1/InformationSocietyAndJustice_v1n1_p17-32.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, London Metropolitan University</dc:publisher><dc:source>1756-1078</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey070</dc:subject><dc:subject>dewey330</dc:subject><dc:title>What do women want?

It focuses on the EU Competition Directorate’s approach concerning the application of the State Aid mechanism with regard to those Member States who have used public subsidies for digital switchover. Therefore, this analysis considers how the Directorate has sought to balance its market-driven set of rules with the need to be adaptable to the Member States’ specific requirements. In turn, this account will discuss how the demand to achieve the 2012 completion deadline, alongside the requirement to release analogue spectrum to realize a digital dividend, impacted upon the EU’s principles of competition. Finally, this analysis will reflect on how the employment of State Aid in relation to digital switchover relates to a wider debate concerning the EU’s neo-liberal agendas against Member States’ interests to promote their national cultures.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/27/1/Wheeler%20-%20European%20Union%20State%20Aid.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>2040-4182</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey070</dc:subject><dc:title>European Union State Aid, public subsidies and analogue switch-off/digital switchover</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Wheeler, Mark</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2012</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1386/jdtv.3.1.7_1</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Many international institutions recognise them as valuable partners and declare to have ‘mainstreamed faith’ within their own activities. But is this really the case? And how has this happened? Focusing on the activities of the World Bank in the 1995-2005 period, when, under the leadership of President James Wolfensohn and Katherine Marshall, then Head of the Bank’s development Dialogue on Values and Ethics (DDVE), the institution engaged with some selected FBOs, this chapter enquires into the reasons for the Bank’s interest in faith as well as its sudden disappearance. It argues that the main rationale for engagement with faith lay in the disappointing results of previous secular strategies and the feeling that religion had a positive role to play in fighting poverty. However, diverging perceptions of poverty and development between states and religious entities, along with lingering suspicions among state officials about dealing with faith in the public realm, derailed the collaboration.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://repository.londonmet.ac.uk/25/1/HaynesJFaith-based02.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:relation>http://poldev.revues.org/1376</dc:relation><dc:source>1663-9375</dc:source><dc:subject>dewey320</dc:subject><dc:title>Faith-based Organisations, Development and the World Bank</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Haynes, Jeffrey</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2013</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>AO</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.4000/poldev.1376</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>
