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

Tuesday, 2nd April 2019, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.

 

 

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.

 

A study looking at how political predispositions affects the behaviours and reactions of individuals when faced with political news sources.

Does the social left react differently to the social right in how they expose them self to news?
