Strategic Lenses Series 1: Security and National Development

 

Strategic Lenses Series 1 (2018) focuses on Security and National Development. In recent decades, insecurity has manifested in varying forms with attendant undesirable setbacks to development in Nigeria. Further, security challenges around Nigeria's neighbourhood and in the wider sub-Saharan and Sahelian regions arising from political and socio-economic discontent have manifested in exacerbated security and developmental burdens to Nigeria. Whereas different explanations have been projected on the slow pace of development in Nigeria, it is apparent that meaningful development can only be achieved and sustained in a secured environment. This publication is therefore compelled by the ever-increasing need for a holistic and multidisciplinary approach towards addressing the multifaceted challenges of development from the backdrop of insecurity in Nigeria.

 

The book aggregates the relevant lectures delivered at the National Defence College by heads of governments, scholars, senior military officers as well as heads of ministries, departments and agencies as they seek to address critical issues in the socio-political economic and military dimensions of national security and development. It is divided into twelve chapters with focus on interrogation of the concept of the state and separation of powers, population demographics, democratic governance, economic growth and regional cooperation.

Strategic Lenses Series 2: Defence and National Security Management In Nigeria

 

The publication on Defence and National Security Management in Nigeria is intended to reflect on internal and external threats to Nigeria's interests. It focuses on promotion of a thorough understanding of the defence establishment and its role in meeting the challenges arising from an ever changing security environment. It also addresses the military and operative context of the changing dimension of threat the Nation face. The book presents the opinion of various authors who, based on their experience and expertise, critically addressed topical issues germane to defence and national security management in Nigeria.

 

The publication is structured into seventeen chapters to appropriately assess the existential threats to Nigeria's security and the preparedness of the national security framework to curtail and manage both the conflicts and its aftermath. The chapters address cross cutting issues on the organization and management of higher defence, defence economics, the capabilities and future perspectives of the Services, as well as contemporary threats to national and regional security.
