Oluwaseun, A, Oduniyi O, Adegbite O.  2019.  THE LONG ROAD TO PEACE: EXAMINING THE CHANGING DYNAMICS OF WARFARE AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW, 2019/09/05. 3:411-430. Abstract

AbstractWarfare and its effect on mankind is no doubt enormous. International Humanitarian Law amongst its other objectives continues to seek better ways of mitigating the adverse effect of wars. In a conceptual sense, scholars have opined that as long as the human race is in existence, warfare would remain. While some argue that wars no longer exist given that what Man contends with terms of modern conflicts is of a different nature, other counter-argue stating that given the ever-changing dynamics of warfare, there will be no time when wars will have the same nature and that whatever the form, it is still warfare of another kind.
This Article examines the veracity of both positions while considering the dynamism that warfare continues to throw up, and the significance of International Humanitarian Law responding accordingly. This article concludes that as longer as International Humanitarian Law genuinely evolves with the same speed as warfare, it would be able to hold its own in a continuously complex world. The article however adds that where this is not the case, the road to peace may yet remain long.

Oduniyi, O, Adegbite O, Olusegun O.  2018.  PHYSICIAN CONDUCT OUTSIDE PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCE IN NIGERIA: A JURISPRUDENTIAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE ETHICAL AND PHILOSOPHICAL UNDERPINNINGS AND DIMENSIONS, 2018/10/10. Abstract

The class of wrongs targeted as the general misconduct of a Physician in Nigeria does not include the physician’s extra-professional conducts. The current understanding is that such conducts are strictly outside the purview of the law and are essentially matters connected to the private life of the physician. Recent developments however show that such conducts have since come under the legal microscope in other jurisdictions, with a view to regulating them.This Paper therefore seek to fill the gap in the Nigerian legal landscape, by engaging the major issues surrounding this class of conducts particularly from an ethical and philosophical understanding of the problem. This Paper opines that there exists an intrinsic relationship between the physician’s extra-professional conducts and his/her eventual performance at work based on the influence the former has on the latter. While recognizing the inherent shortcomings of the present framework, this Paper seeks to leverage on ongoing global interventions on this issue, with a view to bringing in current trends in other jurisdictions to provoke a second look at this class of conducts in Nigeria.

Adejumo, O, Akinsulore A, Oduniyi O.  2017.  THE UNFCCC MECHANISM FOR EMISSION REDUCTION: IMPLEMENTATION CONSTRAINTS IN NIGERIA, 2017/04/10. Abstract

This paper examines the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Protocol and goes further to analyse the mechanisms for emission reduction provided under the Treaties. The paper also considers the implementation constraints of the Mechanisms in developing countries and particularly, in Nigeria. The paper concludes that the Treaties have not been optimally effective in its implementation in Nigeria owing to factors ranging from non-domestication, poverty, corruption and poor regulatory framework to low level of awareness. Recommendations for minimizing the constraints identified are proposed.

O, O, Oduniyi O.  2021.  Workers’ Protection in the Covid-19 Era in Nigeria, 2021/01/01. 8:292-312. Abstract

Against the backdrop of measures adopted sequel to the outbreak of the pandemic, this research focuses on the impact of Covid-19 on the workplace. It highlights and interrogates the utility of responsive measures and also articulates recondite labour issues relating to changing work patterns, pay cuts, job losses culminating in growing unemployment rate, and occupational safety and health concerns within the context of extant labour standards. It also extends focus to the impact of Covid-19 on existing challenges revolving around working poverty, decent work deficit, unfair labour practices, and ineffective labour regimes. This research finds, inter alia, that impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the workplace is colossal, disruptive, and unprecedented, and that extant labour standards, having proved mute on a wide range of contingent workplace issues, can only provide some sort of protection in a detached manner. The research concludes with an array of far-reaching recommendations on the adoption of protective and remedial legal norms that are transient, flexible, and proactive enough to accommodate diverse situations capable of undermining the prospects for labour laws, regulations, and policies in the Covid-19 era.
