This edition of KIU Journal of Social Sciences focuses on Development Administration and Social Psychology.

The first part of the Journal addresses issues in Development Administration such as Fiscal Policy, Economic Repositioning, Voters’ Mobilization, Rural Development, Corruption and Good Governanace. It is established in one of the papers that efforts made by successive Nigerian governments to curb out corruption through the establishment of some anti-corruption agencies such as the ICPC and the EFCC in Nigeria were undermined by the seeming absence of the rule of law and capital punishments for corrupt individuals in the country. As the solutions to these challenges, the paper concludes among others that corruption amongst law enforcement agencies in Nigeria such as the judiciary and the police further worsens the situation.

Papers in the second section are on Social Psychology. Using inmates in Anambra and FCT Correctional Centres in Nigeria as case studies, one of the papers in these sections argues theoretically and demonstrates empirically that family environment influence patterns of crime charged among inmates of correctional centers. It is therefore recommended that government through ministry of Humanitarian and Social Development  engage and assign professionals: Psychologists, Social workers, Clinical Psychologists and Forensic & Correctional Psychologists to families for need assessment, stress coping skills, rehabilitation and care and support services and as well would provide adequate and functional family environment services training and retraining on interpersonal relations, system maintenance and children’s personal growth and development, among others.

On the whole, this issue of KIU Journal of Social Sciences features many interesting research papers. Some of these papers are empirical in nature while others have theoretical base. Each of them focuses on one specific social and management problem or the other; trying to proffer solutions to them. Readers are therefore advised to make proper use of the ideas presented by the various authors.
