Indigenous women were the centers of their community and a common tactic of European settlers was to attack women. Aboriginal women are three times more likely to experience spousal violence; as a result the spousal homicide rate is eight times higher for Aboriginal than non-Aboriginal women. Experts agree violence against aboriginal women is the result of social, economic, and political systems. In July of 2015 the UN Human Rights Committee tasked Canada to close the human rights gap evident in its treatment of aboriginal women and the treatment of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

Statistics from Bureau of Statistics puts unemployment rate at 16 per cent per annum between 2007 and 2009, while youth unemployment is put at 50 per cent. These statistics clearly portends a great danger to the growth and stability of Nigeria. In fact, most of the crises and instability plaguing Nigerian state today cannot be unconnected with the rising youth unemployment. The gravity of this problem is further enunciated in the 2012 budget which made the highest allocation of about $5.7 billion (N921.91 billion) to the defense and security sector. Hence, for a very long time to come, Nigeria would have to continue to seek ways of solving youth unemployment in other to bring about a steady growth and
INTRODUCTION In 1969, violence erupted in Northern Ireland. The Northern Ireland Riots of August 1969 was quickly described as a civil disturbance, and was at first regarded as a nuisance more so than a significant problem. Not long after however, the situation had escalated into a full blown conflict, which forced the Northern Irish government Stormont to ask the British government in Westminster to deploy troops to the conflict area. By the end, thirty years later, the “civil disturbance” had amounted to almost 50,000 casualties. The conflict can be broken down into fighting between the Protestant Unionists and the Catholic Nationalists.
This is the 3rd largest allocation after Education and Local Government share, indicating a huge and genuine political commitment. Moreover, there are numerous programs targeting social development, welfare and (social) security under well-funded ministries which have nutrition as part of their mandate (UNICEF, 2009). Although this allocation falls short of the 15% agreed upon at the Abuja conference in 2000 (Govender et al, 2008), the allocation is fairly large compared with other countries that allocate far less a proportion. Indeed, it is the implementation of these measures that led to dramatic reduction of malnutrition in Botswana in the between 1997 and 2003 (Yambi, 2003, Seleka et al., 2008). Indicators of these successes included : i.
In Nigeria, housing deficit as at 2007 stood at between 12 million to 14 million units (Akeju, 2007) by 2008, had risen to 18 million units (Onwuemenyi, 2008). With an annual population growth rate of 3.2% (NPC, 2006) and rapid urbanisation, the housing deficit is expected to remain on the ascendancy. Available data (for 2014) from the World Bank and the National Bureau of Statistics agree that Nigeria has an estimated housing deficit of over 17 million units. According to UN statistics, about 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing globally, while over 100 million are homeless. Nigeria hosts an uncomfortably large percentage of these two, with over 100 million Nigerians considered to live in substandard
