    Get PDF
    The article endeavours to give a bird‚Äôs eye view of catechesis in Italy as from 1870 to the threshold of Vatican Council II ‚Äď 1962. The point of departure is a study of the use of the Catechism as the handbook for Catechesis. The study will then move on study the efforts of individuals ‚Äď from priests to Pope Pius X ‚Äď who sought to positively influence catechesis through their ministry and how different Congresses and Conventions helped in trying to formulate a more coherent catechesis throughout Italy. Finally, the paper will end by a study of the Active Method which was to be the unifying factor for catechesis in Italy prior to Vatican Council II.peer-reviewe

    Parties Parallel Primaries and Its Implication to Political Development in Nigeria

    Get PDF
    Structurally, political parties in the country are weak and this has always led to lack of internal cohesion. Most political parties operate outside the purview of their constitutional guides. The lack of internal democracy in the political parties is therefore, not only worrisome but has become highly problematic with rising incidences of political parties’ parallel primaries. The recent primaries conducted by the various political parties have only shown that the culture of inclusive democracy is still miles away from the nation’s political space, which might take some time for Nigeria to catch up with the reality of representative governance. The primaries for nomination of candidates for the various political offices in preparation for the general elections from 2003 to 2015 may have come and gone, but the angst generated by the outcome of the primaries has continued to attract opprobrium. The effects of this malaise have threatened the very foundations of the Nigerian state and have slowed the pace of democratic consolidation and political development in the country. How then can we build democracy without democrats? Cries of candidate’s imposition, parallel congresses, undemocratic conducts and mass protest have greeted the outcome of the so-called primaries across the states of the federation. The disagreement and anger generated by the undemocratic conduct associated with the primaries have culminated in threat of mass defection from some political parties. This paper sought to investigate political parties’ parallel primaries in the context of Nigeria fourth republic with a view to ascertaining it implication to political development and proffering way forward. Key words: political party, parallel primaries, political development, candidate selection, internal democracy

    Thessaloniki and the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair. A Case of Conflict?

    Get PDF
    The plans of the ‚ÄėThessaloniki International Trade Fair (TIF) SA‚Äô to develop the area occupied by the facilities of the Trade Fair ignited a strong debate. The TIF SA was established in 1925 and the General Trade Fair, as it came to be called, organised on an annual basis, has since become a major event for the city of Thessaloniki and its region. The activities of the TIF SA expanded in a wide range of related activities. On the other hand, the General Trade Fair is currently facing very serious competition. The General Trade Fair takes place in facilities located in an 18-ha property of which TIF SA is the sole proprietor. This property, roughly located at the geometric centre of the city, is part of a wider, ribbon-like, zone extending from the sea front to the grove surrounding the city, comprised of public open spaces and low ratio of floor-space-to-plot areas, occupied by educational, cultural, recreational, sports and exhibition activities of at least city scale importance, and owned by the public sector. Proposals for relocating the General Trade Fair first appeared in 1985. For as long as Thessaloniki was a candidate for the 2008 EXPO, the TIF SA was seriously considering relocating the Trade Fair to one of its properties outside Thessaloniki. Last fall, the TIF SA announced preliminary plans for renovating the facilities in the centre and, in the process, intensifying the use of its property mainly with a hotel, movie theatres and new retail facilities. On the other side, major actors, including the Mayor, clearly oppose to these plans. The conflict generates debate and scenarios revolving around two apparent extremes: Adoption of the TIF SA proposal or redevelopment of the wider, ribbon-like, zone with priority given to the public open spaces and the pedestrian. If Thessaloniki or the TIF SA were to eventually prepare a dossier for the 2015 EXPO, the situation might call for drastic proposals encompassing new plans for the city and its region, economies of scale and concentration regarding the exhibition-related activities, and the make-up of the image of the city.
