Title: Alcoholisation in Third World Countries
Description: Abstract The- consumption of alcohol in the developing world has increased dramatically in recent decades. Consequently, third world countries will have to contend with problems related to excessive drinking. This article analyses the gradual transformation of alcohol from an ‘integrative’ pastime to a costly abuse as big international companies deliberately push alcohol into developing countries at a time when its marketing in the industrialised countries themselves is under attack. It lists the reasons for the increase in drinking habits of Third world peoples, citing Nigeria and Tanzania as cases in point.

Title: Social Costs of Poverty: The Case of Crime in Nigeria
Description: ABSTRACT Poverty in Nigeria, like in most developing nations of Africa, is widespread and seems to be on the increase by the day. When poverty is coupled with high levels of economic and social aspirations, the stage is set for criminal activities – particularly official corruption, robbery and dealing in illegal goods and services. People who are thwarted in attaining desired social and economic goals legally, may seek to obtain them illegally. This paper, using anomie theory, analysis how poverty, resulting from unemployment and inflation, increases criminal activities in Nigeria. The discussion stresses that poverty is a social problem that deserves serious attention. It noted that the social problems which afflict Nigerians as a people are the result of the faulty strategy of development which has prevailed in the country, the particular set of economic and social policies to which that strategy has given rise and the particular structural arrangements which have produced and sustained both the strategy and the policies. Itrecommends a drastic modification of the development strategy, both at the macro and micro levels.

Title: Child Abuse and Child Labour Across Culture: Implications for Research, Prevention and Policy Implementation
Description: ABSTRACT The article presents an overview of the global problem of child abuse and child labour, with emphasis on the implications of the issues for research, prevention, and policy decision. It is argued that for the definition of child abuse and child labour to be meaningful, the definition should be culturally relevant. As evidenced by many empirical studies, child labour is experienced by millions of children in Africa (Nigeria, in particular in the context of this article) and other developing countries. Ithas many deleterious consequences for most of the children. Recommendations for the prevention of child labour syndrome are summarised in terms of action research, education and public enlightenment, legislative measures, structural adjustment, and adjustment in value orientations that generate poverty and promote merchandisation and exploitation of.children.

Title: Overcoming Destitution through Literacy: A Case of the Disabled Persons’ Literacy Programme in Kano State, Nigeria
Description: ABSTRACT This paper describes an experimental literacy programme for the disabled, set up in Kano (1), Nigeria between 1989 and 1990. The programme’s objective was to help the destitutes to overcome some of their socio-economic drawbacks. The programme took off with the enrolment of 450 people. At the end of the programme, 380 participants or 84.4% sat for and passed the qualifying examination. As expected, 70 people from among the neoliteratcs found jobs in the Civil Service bureaucracy, while 250 or 55.5% were able to continue their education in the postliteracy programmes organised by the State Agency for Mass Education. However, the lack of funds, inadequate professional preparation of the instructors, and discontinuity of the programme limited its potentially wider impact. It is therefore advocated that multi-lateral and international donor bodies such as the British Council, UNICEF and UNDP should provide fiscal assistance to such programmes, in order to create a basis for promoting greater global equity.

Title: Ethnic Conflict and Democracy in Nigeria: The Marginalisation Question
Description: ABSTRACT This paper examines the issue of ethnic conl1icts and thcir implications for democracy in Nigeria. Ethnic conflict and distrust is identified as the bane of former democratic experiments in Nigeria. Moreover, since the late 1980s, ethnicity in Nigeria has assumed disturbing new dimensions. The most crucial of these arc the issues of marginalisation and agitations by ethnic minorities. Marginalisation breeds suspicion, distrust, heightens ethnic tensions and may eventually lead to conl1ict over the sharing and allocation of power and national resources. Democratic tradition, which is imperative lor development, cannot blossom in the context of ethnic conflict. Thus,marginalisation, whether apparent or real, has the potential for disrupting the drive towards democracy. With cries for marginalisation so rife among ethnic groups, a need arises to address the issue squarely. This is particularly important given that Nigeria is presently engaged in another attempt at democracy. Ethnic conflicts in whatever form need to be resolved in order to allow for democracy to thrive. This paper examines ways in which ethnic problems in Nigeria may be resolved through the creation o

Title: Poverty alleviation with economic growth strategy: prospects and challenges in contemporary Nigeria
Description: ABSTRACT There has been a high and growing incidence of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa in the last two decades or so. Over time what can be discerned in the various approaches to poverty alleviation in these countries is that they are determined largely by making a choice between growth-promoting policies and poverty:focused strategies. The reality, however; is that the two approaches are not, after all mutually exclusive: they are complementary to the extent that the former serve only as a long-term solution while the latter constitute an immediate and direct shot at the poverty itself. This paper deliberates on the rationality of adopting the so-called  »poverty alleviation with economic growth » strategy. The strategy brings to the fore the necessity of tackling poverty through a broadly-based growth process with an explicit orientation to employment generation, supplemented by massive investments in human capital of the poor:Theprospects and challenges of this strategy in the context of the Nigerian situation are articulated and the conclusion of the paper ‘?s’ that poverty alleviation in contemporary Nigeria requires both economic policy and educational reforms. Tbenhance the human capital of the poor in particular, the prioritiesforeducational reforms should be in the areas of basic education, vocational education and training.
