Call for Contributions: An Edited Book on Nigeria and the MDGs
Call for Papers Date:
We are looking for contributors to our edited book project on “Nigeria and the Millennium Development Goals”.
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight international development goals established by the United Nations at the 2000 UN Millennium Summit, following the adoption of the United Nations Millennium Declaration. All the then 189 Member States and some international organisations pledged to attain the goals by 2015.
The goals have associated targets against which progress can be assessed. Nigeria is a signatory to the millennium declaration. As 2015 approaches, there is a need to assess the country’s progress in each of the MDGs. The main objective of this work is to take stock of challenges and bottlenecks in the implementation of the MDGs and to recommend good strategies towards achieving the MDGs by 2015 and/or beyond.
Also, contributors are expected to appraise any development framework that the country may be defining as part of the Post-2015 Development Agenda that will succeed the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
To signify your intention to contribute to this collection, please send an abstract of 300-500 words and a brief resume to Dr Bukola Adesina, Department of Political Science, University of Ibadan, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for abstract submission: 14 February 2014.
Full paper of between 6000-8000 words, following the MLA style, must be submitted by 15 May 2014 to the same address.
