  • Opportunités et défis de la réconciliation à l’Est de la République Démocratique du Congo : Cas des conflits liés à la transhumance en territoires de Fizi et d’Uvira (Sud-Kivu)

    Mashanda, Murhega; Kitoka, Moke (Globethics.net, 2019)
    Cette recherche originale met en lumière des conditions de possibilité d'une expérience des réconciliations qui s'enracine dans un processus participatif qui a une vocation éthique globale, dans une robuste déconstruction de tout culture de violence en faveur d'une culture de dialogue. Prenant appui sur l'étude de cas de mécanismes efficaces et durables de gestion des conflits liés à la transhumance dans l'Est du RD Congo, on trouvera dans cet ouvrage une synthèse des expériences d'un ensemble d'ONG congolais, présentant à la fois: a) le caractère domptable des conflits liés à la transhumance par des approches endogènes de gestion des conflits, b) la mise en exergue de la vulnérabilité des initiatives locales de paix, tant que l'État ne les intègre pas dans la mise en place des politiques nationales et locales.
  • Ethique de l’eau : principes et lignes directrices

    Globethics.net; Girardin, Benoît; Workshop for Water Ethics (W4W) (Globethics.net, 2019)
    Certains sont d’avis que des perspectives éthiques concernant la gestion de l’eau n’ont aucune importance ou n’apportent aucune valeur ajoutée. Ce texte sur l’éthique de l’eau prétend le contraire ; il convoque les valeurs et les principes éthiques de sorte à influer sur les questions relatives à l’eau et à y apporter des solutions qui améliorent les chances de résultats positifs pour tous les concernés. Les considérations éthiques entrent en jeu, par exemple, dans la manière de gérer l’eau à disposition et sa valeur marchande, comme une question d’éthique économique et d’accès équitable ; les innovations techniques relatives à l’extraction, au traitement ou à l’approvisionnement de l’eau relèvent d’une éthique de l’innovation ; la gestion de conflits relatifs à l’eau est essentielle à l’éthique de la paix ; la régulation et la gestion de l’eau requièrent une éthique politique ; et la manière de traiter des traditions religieuses et des croyances ne peut se faire sans une éthique de la religion. Le texte, élaboré par un groupe international d’experts et approuvé par le conseil de fondation de Globethics.net montre comment les valeurs éthiques peuvent faciliter le traitement de questions et la gestion de conflits relatifs à l’eau d’une manière qui soit efficace, durable et inclusive. De la sorte ce texte se veut une contribution à la mise en œuvre de l’objectif 6 des objectifs de développement durable des Nations unies, visant à garantir l’accès de tous à l’eau et à l’assainissement et assurer une gestion durable des ressources en eau.
  • Ethics in higher education : international and African challenges and opportunities

    Stückelberger, Christoph, 1951- (2019)
    Higher education globally and also in Africa faces manifold challenges in governance, funding, students' and staff recruitment, exam monitoring, plagiarism, bullying, cybercrime etc. But many opportunities arise for universities which position themselves as values-driven educational institutions. Ethics increase credibility, credibility builds trust, trust brings reputation, reputation increases number of students, improves teachers’ teaching and brings more funding. Education in Higher education means forming future leaders. Ethics in Higher education therefore is leadership ethics. The contribution shows the crisis of trust, reasons for the ethical challenges in higher education, which values and virtues need to be benchmarks and which concrete steps lead to solutions on personal, institutional, political, economic and spiritual level.

  • Higher education in crisis : sustaining quality assurance and innovation in research through applied ethics

    Ani, Ikechukwu J.; Ike, Obiora F.,‏ ‎1956-‏ (Globethics.net, 2019)
    Education in Ethics, if acquired, increases the value chain of any nation because Education founded on values brings values-driven-principles into the heart of humans. We are, however, aware of the gap in values transmission from one generation to the next. This book is a response to that gap. It contains reflections by professionals, teachers, research students and educationists, including policy makers and ethicists, whose thought provoking ideas help the discourse of pushing the agenda that Ethics Matters.
  • Diritti dell’uomo e società democratica

    Gandolfi, Stefania (Globethics.netFondazione Vittorino Chizzolini - Diritti dell'uomo e cooperazione internazionale, 2019)
    Nei diritti dell’uomo convergono le aspirazioni e le rivendicazioni fondamentali dell’etica sociale pubblica” affermava Giovanni Paolo II° ed è ciò che questo testo cerca di mettere a fuoco attraverso il rapporto sistemico dei diritti e la statura e la soggettualità dei loro attori che si traduce nel quotidiano in un’etica pubblica intesa come la coscienza sociale della collettività ; una coscienza che nasce dalla tensione fra i diritti e la loro effettività per ridefinire la vita pubblica in funzione della capacità di vivere insieme.
  • Blue Ethics : Ethical Perspectives on Sustainable, Fair Water Resources Use and Management

    Girardin, Benoît; Fiechter-Widemann, Evelyne (Globethics.net, 2019)
    For many policy makers, urban managers, water experts, technicians or activists, ethical perspectives in water management are not important or do not bring any added value. A debate seems to be locked between those stressing mainly the right of access to water for all and those who cannot go beyond economic realism. The sustainable use of a resource that becomes under growing pressure, in terms of extraction, allocation and recycling looks as a technical issue, not to say a technocratic one. This collective book claims the opposite. The many issues faced by the access to water as well as the sustainable use of the resource rely on open negotiations, settling conflicts, tariffs structure while expanding delivery and managing fairly water' scarcity in all these processes, ethical values do matter.
  • Water ethics : principles and guidelines

    Girardin, Benoît; Workshop for Water Ethics (W4W); Globethics.net (Globethics.net, 2019)
    Some would say that ethical perspectives on water management are not important or that they do not bring any added value. This text on water ethics claims the opposite; it brings ethical values and principles to bear on current water issues to provide solutions that improve the chances of positive outcomes for all concerned. Ethical concerns come into play in, for example, managing the availability of water and its market value, as a question of economic ethics and of fair access; technical innovation in relation to extraction, treatment and delivery of water includes innovation ethics; managing water conflicts is key for peace ethics; regulating and managing water needs political ethics; and dealing with religious traditions and beliefs about water cannot be done without religious ethics. The text, authored by an international group of experts and approved by the Globethics.net Board of Foundation, shows how ethical values can facilitate the handling of issues and conflicts related to water in an effective, sustainable and inclusive manner. As such the text is a contribution to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
  • Local Culture and Early Parenting in China : A Case Study on Chinese Christian Mothers’ Childrearing Experiences

    Yan, Jun (Globethics.net, 2019)
    With the increase of Chinese Christians born in the “post-70s” and “post-80s” generations, the issue of early childhood education in Christian families deserves attention from an academic standpoint in these days. This study aims to interpret the meaning of Christian families’ childrearing experiences within the social and cultural contexts of China. It explores the educational philosophy of Chinese Christian families and examines how it influenced their childrearing activities through the detailed descriptions of Chinese Christian mothers’ childrearing experiences. Christian fathers are more involved in education than non-Christian. The parents act with the dual cultural orientation of “Sincization” and “Christianization”.
  • Changing frontiers of ethics in finance : Ethics & Trust in Finance Global Prize Awards 2012–2017

  • Speaking Truth to Power

    Muthuraj, Joseph G. (Globethics.net, 2015)
    The demand for a better power control and accountability in the Indian Christian Churches underlines the issue of transforming traditional leadership models. The Church of South India (CSI) is a unique church since it is the pioneer of a united and uniting church since 1947, uniting the Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregationalist denominations of the missionary churches. With over 4 million members, it is a powerful church even though Christians in India represent a small minority. The process of a constitutional reform is currently debated to change the character of this church from a united to an episcopal church with an accumulation of power in the role of the moderator. The controversy about this reform is linked to ongoing criticisms about corruption in many of the CSI-related institutions. On this background, church governance becomes a hot issue of power control and accountability, and above all, of the faithfulness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the credibility of the community of believers.
  • Corruption-Free Churches are Possible [Tamil version]

    Stückelberger, Christoph (Globethics.net, 2010)
    "In spite of all the efforts and successes during the last twenty years corruption remains a major ethical challenge around the globe and one of the main obstacles to development. This study concentrates on a sector, on which not many publications are available: churches, mission organizations and development agencies"
  • Women’s access to social media networks in rural Fiji

    Bhagwan-Rolls, Sharon (Globethics.net, 2014)
    "While millions of people around the globe, through social networking (internal, external, or mobile), are building online local, regional, and global communities to communicate their shared interests and activities, disseminate information, and interact through a variety of web-based tools, what are the implications for rural women in the Pacific Island region?"
  • Nepali women use new information and communication technologies to advocate for policy change

    Thapa, Manju (Globethics.net, 2014)
    "Nepal, a rectangular east-west spread on the Asian map, sandwiched between China to the north and India to the south, is divided into three ecological regions: the northern Himalayan belt, the middle mountains (where most of the people live), and the narrow southern strip of plain, which grows most of the food crops. The country is divided into five development regions and 14 administrative zones, with 75 districts, although recent political changes have popularized the notion of a federalism-based state-nation, and which seems in the offing. Basically a feudal patriarchal society, Nepalese society has been experiencing a rapidly changing political scenario, economic policies and social awareness in recent decades that have brought about enormous transformations, and in which everyday lives are reconceptualised, reconstructed and lived, with new negotiations continually made between the personal and public."
  • Gender and ethics in an online environment

    Randhawa, Sonia (Globethics.net, 2014)
    "The following chapter examines how two online platforms, Gender- IT.org and Take Back the Tech!,engage with the issue of ethics and trust with their networks on issues related to feminism and internet technologies."
  • Flying broom’s “local women reporters’ network”

    Doğan, Selen; Somuncuoğlu, Sevna (Globethics.net, 2014)
    "It is expected that the media as a significant power use this power also for equality, justice and peace. Yet, the media have become a tool for struggle in women’s world, just like in other “disregarded”, “weakened” communities. A dangerous tool! This is because women constitute half of the population on a global scale. In this respect the media should not exist by addressing and being nourished by only one half of the population. However, today’s media form a structure, in almost every part of the world, in which only men make decisions and media context is maledominated. The media, with their sexist language and perspective, are far away from representing women."
  • Unequal in an unequal world: gender dimensions of communication rights

    Lee, Philip (Globethics.net, 2014)
    "In 1948 the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and thirty-three years later, in 1981, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) entered into force. Yet it still took until 25 June 1993 for the UN World Conference on Human Rights to rededicate itself to “the global task of promoting and protecting all human rights and fundamental freedoms” and to affirm that “All human rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent and interrelated” by adopting what became known as the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action (VDPA)."
  • Financial Sustainability of Church Related Organizations

    Mawudor, Bright Gabriel (Globethics.net, 2016)
    Church Related Organizations (CROs) contribute largely to social and economic development. But many of them in developing countries are today facing a financial crisis due to many years of dependency on foreign donations for their diaconal work and as donor support declines. This empirical doctoral thesis in Business Management analyses key determinants for financial sustainability of CROs in Kenya. Key factors for financial sustainability are asset management, donor diversification, own income generation and the donor relations. The book is relevant for Board and management of CROs and other civil society organisations CSOs, for finance officers, for donors as well for students in business management.
  • Ética de la investigación en ciencias sociales

    Santi, María Florencia (Globethics.net, 2016)
    El propósito de esta tesis de doctorado es hacer un análisis filosófico de los problemas éticos que pueden suscitarse en el contexto de las investigaciones de las ciencias sociales. El capítulo 1 tiene como propósito reconstruir brevemente la historia de la ética de la investigación social y dar cuenta de los desarrollos y debates académicos actuales en torno a estos temas. El capítulo 2 tiene describir las principales estrategias metodológicas de las ciencias sociales y realizar una aproximación a los problemas éticos. Los capítulos 3 y 4 se centran en el análisis particularizado de los problemas éticos de las investigaciones sociales a la luz de diversos conceptos clave: daño, riesgo, beneficio, autonomía, privacidad y confidencialidad. Los capítulos 5 y 6 abordan una temática novedosa: el análisis del concepto de vulnerabilidad y los problemas éticos que implica la inclusión de personas en situación de vulnerabilidad en estas investigaciones. Allí se presenta un nuevo concepto de vulnerabilidad que puede resultar más apropiado para el análisis ético de las investigaciones sociales que los conceptos actuales y contribuye al debate en torno a la ética y la investigación en ciencias sociales.
