2 April - Rethinking public participatory spaces, institutional design in nascent democracies: A Nigerian case study

Studies have shown that most Africans prefer to live in a democracy since the early 1990’s the number of democracies have been on the increase; most continuously struggle with the practice of democracy and have been labelled as either defective or nascent democracies. A global catalogue of innovations aimed at deepening democracies by involving citizens is on the increase. A focus of this study is to examine the ‘carved-out space’ that enhances citizen participation in decision-making processes at the local level of governance. This approached is seen as a bridge between the formal (Colonial, post-colonial), and the informal traditional (pre-colonial) political institutions.
