About Us

The Journal of International Politics and Development (JIPAD) is a truly international, bi-annual peer-reviewed journal with a reputation for high editorial standards. It is published by the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, Babcock University, Ilisan-Remo, Ogun State, Nigeria, and has never missed an edition since its inauguration in 2003. The journal is currently in its fifteenth edition and is published in January and June.

Our Mission

JIPAD seeks to publish original research that advances knowledge about politics, economy, society and development at the global, international, regional and domestic levels. The journal is interdisciplinary in scope and welcomes full-length articles, briefings, book reviews, conference reports and research notes that draw from, or can inform developments across disciplines, and across national boundaries. JIPAD also provides a forum for interaction between policy and practice on questions of governance and development, and thereby informs policy debates among scholars, researchers, policy makers and relevant audiences. The main criterion for acceptance of an article, though, is the high intellectual quality of such a submission, and the clear potential to contribute distinctly to debates in the subject of discourse.
