THE IMPACT OF INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITIES ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF NNEWI

Daniel Chukwuma Nzereogu, Prof. Ben B. Naanen

Abstract: Often it is believed that there is a nexus between industrialization and development. Some development theorists are of the view that industrialization leads to increase in wealth and would definitely flow down to the larger population. Their opinion is that if a nation wants to develop it should industrialize, and thus they argue that the transition from a traditional to modern society can be explained as a rise in the rate of investment to a point that is more than population growth. On the other hand there are others who have challenged this view on the grounds that industrialization is not the same as development, and that output can expand without meeting the basic needs of the population. They further questioned this view, without necessarily rejecting the idea that industrialization is necessary for development but their definitions of development often include attention to basic needs such as decent health-care, education, income for all, and environmental sustainability and not industrialization alone.

Raymond Adibe. Ph.D., Okey Oji Ph.D., Chukwuemeka Ejiofor, Chikwado Ezugworie, Ikemefuna Nwoke

Abstract: This study examined the link between the United Nations’ (UN) peace process and humanitarian crisis in Syria. Specifically, the study examined the effect of the absence of punitive measures in UN peace deal agreements on compliance to the escalation of the conflict in Syria. The study found that the absence of prescribed punishment for the violators of the UN peace process undermined compliance to all forms of peaceful intervention in the Syrian crisis, thus, implicated in the escalation of humanitarian crisis in Syria between 2011 and 2013.
