Abstract

Kano is a city where a multi-layered form of community policing was established in the era of the rollback of the state in social provisioning in the midst of ever-increasing armed banditry and crime. Between 1985 and 2005, vigilante groups were established in almost all the neighbourhoods of Kano with the support of the traditional authority and community leaders. However, government interference, political instrumentalisation and inadequate support undermined its critical rote. Part of the ...

Abstract

One of the consequences of the failure of the state to protect life and property of its entire citizens especially in developing countries like Nigeria is the emergences of private alternatives to crime prevention and control. This process of privatisation of security in Nigeria often involves recruitment of corporate and local security guards, vigilantes, night watchmen and the control of access into the neighbourhoods through gates and barriers. The book examines the nature, types, procedur...

Abstract

A pioneering book on prisons in West Africa, Colonial Systems of Control: Criminal Justice in Nigeria is the first comprehensive presentation of life inside a West African prison. Chapters by prisoners inside Kirikiri maximum security prison in Lagos, Nigeria are published alongside chapters by scholars and activists. While prisoners document the daily realities and struggles of life inside a Nigerian prison, scholar and human rights activist Viviane Saleh-Hanna provides historical, political, and academic contexts and analyses of the penal system in Nigeria. The European penal models and institutions imported to Nigeria during colonialism are exposed as intrinsically incoherent with the community-based conflict-resolution principles of most African social structures and justice models. This book presents the realities of imprisonment in Nigeria while contextualizing the colonial legacies that have resulted in the inhumane brutalities that are endured on a daily basis.

Abstract

Le débat sur la justice et l'injustice est central et urgent dans les sociétés démocratiques, et la justice sociale est l'horizon de la plupart des politiques d'action sur les territoires. Mais le doute sur les grands récits explicatifs du monde a conduit souvent à relativiser tout discours sur la justice. Ce processus est renforcé par l'émergence de mouvements sociaux divers (féministes, écologistes, anti-racistes...) et par le développement du multiculturalisme : en un même lieu et au même ...

Abstract

Depuis le milieu du xxe siècle, du fait de la forte croissance démographique, les sols et la végétation des zones tropicales et méditerranéennes subissent d'importantes dégradations. Actuellement, plus de 20 % des terres cultivées sont dégradées chimiquement, physiquement et biologiquement. En effet, malgré la mise en œuvre de grands projets tels la conservation de l'eau et des sols (CES), la production agricole ne peut être maintenue à un niveau suffisant pour nourrir une population qui double tous les vingt ans dans les pays du Sud. Cet ouvrage a ainsi pour objectif de présenter les principaux résultats de la recherche dans le domaine de la restauration de la productivité des sols. Les causes de la dégradation des sols des régions chaudes sont présentées dans un premier temps. On évalue ensuite les divers modes de gestion de la biomasse et des nutriments, puis les techniques culturales et les systèmes de gestion de l'eau. Les nombreuses données expérimentales présentées montrent que la restauration durable des systèmes agroécologiques est possible, moyennant le respect de six règles : une bonne maîtrise de l'eau, l'apport de matières organiques, l'utilisation de compléments minéraux, la revitalisation du sol (fumier / compost), la correction du pH du sol et le choix judicieux de cultures à fort développement de biomasse. L'ouvrage, qui présente de nombreuses études de terrain originales, s'adresse tant aux chercheurs qu'aux enseignants, aux étudiants, aux décideurs et aux différents acteurs en charge du développement rural.
