Challenges of Interreligious Dialogue

Between the Christian and the Muslim Communities in Nigeria

Edmund Emeka Ezegbobelu

This case study of the micro nation states in Nigeria shows that the issues involved in interreligious dialogue cannot be analysed in isolation from other various societal variables as some scholars have done in the past. This work demonstrates that religion and theological studies must be rooted in interdisciplinary approach and must pay serious attention to «contexts». These contexts – societal variables including geo-historical, cultural, religious, local, national, artistic and global factors – play an indispensable role and provide the background for understanding, interpreting and evaluating human religious expressions. Given the complexity of these contexts, the author applied the hermeneutic and interdisciplinary approaches to translate both theological and intellectual issues on interreligious encounters between Christianity and Muslims in Nigeria with the issues of local and national social problems. This work opens a new dimension in the studies of interreligious relations.

Developmental Impact of Technology Transfer

Theory & Practice: A Case of Nigeria, 1970-1982

Edmund Emeka Ezegbobelu

Developmental Impact of Technology Transfer in Nigeria is a major work of its kind which examines the roots of Nigeria's inability to assimilate and institutionalise imported foreign technologies. The author takes unconventional view and fathoms the complex issues encountered in international technology transfer in their various ramifications. The author argues that the traditional theories might have explained away the complex issues involved and have treated the major factors essential for the positive developmental impact of the transferred technology on the receiving society with benign neglect. The empirical results from this work provide a new understanding of the problems which obstruct the process of sucessful technology transfer to the developing countries.
