The Journal of Nation-building and Policy studies is a bi-annual, peer-reviewed
academic and policy oriented periodical of the RLF. The journal will debut later this year (2017).
It is a pleasure to introduce the ROGAN Leadership Foundation’s Journal of Nation Building & Policy Studies (JoNPS). This bi-annual, peer reviewed journal provides an exciting opportunity for exploring academic and policy perspectives across various disciplines and issues on nation-building. The objective of JoNPS is to publish up-to-date, high quality and original research and policy papers, as well as relevant and insightful book and special issue reviews, which have relevance for the nation-building processes in Nigeria. In order to cut across a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including academics, policy makers, civil society and ordinary citizens, the journal will be challenging and engaging yet accessible. Each issue will typically contain four types of papers – peer-reviewed academic papers, policy-oriented papers, researched opinion pieces and book reviews. All of these will have at their core engagement issues of nation-building in Nigeria, Africa and the world…………
