  • Transformative spiritualities : for the pilgrimage of justice and peace

    Enns, Fernando; Pacheco Lozano, Andrés; Pries, Betty; Va'ai, Upolu Luma (Globethics.netWorld Council of Churches, 2022)
    The Churches of the World Council of Churches have been on a “Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace”- together with people of goodwill—since they met for their assembly in Busan in 2013. Building peace with justice has been at the heart of the ecumenical movement since its beginnings. It reflects the call of the churches in a wounded world caused by systemic injustice - racism, sexism, xenophobia, economic exploitation, and violence among humans and against nature, our “Mother”. While political advocacy, theological reflections, and ethical orientation have been high on the agenda of the World Council of Churches, the spiritual dimension of a “just peace” has not always received the same attention. Starting a Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, the WCC began to focus intentionally on “transformative spiritualities” in order to (re-)discover the strength of the many and diverse faith communities around the globe. What is the well of that distinct power to resist evil with good, to transform injustices into a life of dignity for all, to heal broken relations – including Mother nature? And what are some of the spiritual practices that inspire communities on that “sacred walk”? This volume provides a selection of reflections on those transformative spiritualities, from indigenous perspectives to women’s voices, from black communities´ to campesino/as´ struggles, from specific Christian traditions to sister faiths. It is that common well we all drink from - inviting readers to participate in that promise that a life in peace and justice is, in fact, possible for all.

  • Les enfants de personne : étude clinique et de phénoménologie sociale sur l’enfance défavorisée en RD Congo

    Masiala ma Solo, André (Globethics.net, 2022)
    La grande croissance démographique de la RD Congo favorise l’établissement d’une société composée par plus d’un 50% de jeunes en dessous des 15 ans. Depuis dix ans, l’UNICEF prévient que plus de 7 millions d’enfants ne fréquentent pas l’école, devenant des enfants de la rue, dépourvus de famille. C’est avec un regard de psychosociologue que Masiala ma Solo nous aide à trouver des pistes pour prévenir que ces petites victimes, les enfants de personne, restent tragiquement enfermées dans un cercle de destruction qui nuit à l’ensemble de la société civile congolaise.

L’ouvrage est destiné aux enseignants exerçant dans les classes du primaire et du secondaire, aux enseignants en formation, aux formateurs d’enseignants, et à tous ceux qui s’intéressent de près aux questions éducatives en Afrique. Ce manuel est le résultat d’un travail collectif mené par des chercheurs de plusieurs horizons, et soutenu par Fondazione Vittorino Chizzolini (Italy), L’École normale supérieure (ENS, Niger) et l’Université de Genève (UNIGE, Suisse).
  • Les élections en Afrique : analyse des comportements et pistes normatives de gestion des conflits

    Diangitukwa, Fweley (Globethics.net, 2022)
    Chacun s’interroge sur l’instabilité et les violences postélectorales. Censées faciliter l’alternance au pouvoir, les élections sont devenues une véritable source d’instabilité des institutions. Ce livre se consacre à l’analyse des élections en Afrique et des causes à l’origine de nouveaux phénomènes, qui entraînent des morts inutiles et détruisent les économies nationales encore faibles et fragiles. L’auteur examine l’origine d’un remarquable mimétisme chez les dirigeants et en montre les limites en politique publique, afin de présenter douze propositions originales pour sortir l’Afrique des crises postélectorales successives.
  • Vietnam in transition : education, culture and ethics : a reader and curriculum

    Andres, Anh Tho (Globethics.netVietnam Hoc Institute c/o Geneva Agape Foundation, 2022)
    This book reflects on the process of constructing a curriculum for Vietnam studies designed for educators and researchers in the field of social studies. Based on a selection of scholarly works, proceeds of seminars and conferences on education inside and outside Vietnam, the English edition proposes an analysis on factors that affect the learning environment of Vietnam as a young nation in the context of globalisation. The texts presented cover a large spectrum of subjects, starting with the changes in the educational and cultural background of Cochinchina under the French colonial period, visiting the role of higher education in an economy in transition, including the major literary trends in the pre-1975 Southern Vietnam modernisation process, among others. Transcripts of seminars and conferences reflect participants’ visions on the future of Vietnamese education, with the editor’s comments as takeaways at the end of each section.
  • La radicalité de Jésus dans l’appel des disciples : une enquête dans les quatre évangiles

    Muderhwa, Barhatulirwa Vincent (Globethics.net, 2022)
    Face aux crises que traverse la République démocratique du Congo depuis soixante ans, un retour aux sources des quatre évangiles est proposé par l’auteur. Une exégèse de l’appel aux disciples par Jésus est mise en dialogue avec les besoins du peuple congolais. Comment réussir à produire une alliance comparable à celle offerte aux disciples, et qui fonctionne dans la réalité actuelle? Des ressorts puissants sont assurés par des relations interpersonnelles responsables. Suivre l’appel aux disciples c’est transcender la seule foi par une volonté d’agir. Cette volonté d’agir permet la conduite conséquente et collective d’actions selon un bien commun responsable, dont les racines axiologiques sont puisées dans cette foi. Transposée dans le contexte d’un des plus grands pays africains, cette volonté se transforme en une clé de développement spirituel et politique quasi irrésistible, - comme Jésus qui appelait à une plus grande allégeance, et à un ethos qui ne ressemblait pas à Rome, fût entendu bien au-delà de la province la plus éloignée de l’Empire romain.
  • Whispers from the land of snows : culture-based violence in Tibet

    Morel, Fanny Iona (Globethics.net, 2022)
    This study investigates the correlation between violations of cultural rights and the violence committed by state actors against a community rooted in a profoundly Buddhist society. It is based on the first-hand testimonies of Tibetan exiles who have sought asylum in Switzerland. It uncovers the experiences, perceptions and opinions of Tibetans, most of whom have suffered various forms of abuse in Tibet. The approach adopted in this book draws on the 2007 Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and 2007 Declaration de Fribourg, which reflect the essential role of cultural rights. It also focuses on the concept of genocide developed by Raphael Lemkin (1900–1959). The PRC has violently disrupted the natural process of cultural change in Tibet, through forced cultural assimilation which continues to engender violence. Tibetans’ resilience, nonviolence and commitment to peace are powerful coping mechanisms. Yet, extreme self-violence continues: since 1998, 157 self-immolations have been reported. Efforts must continue to advocate for human rights in Tibet, particularly when it comes to issues of freedoms of expression, religion, assembly and of move- ment, in order to secure a sustainable peace that would benefit both Tibet and the PRC.
  • Robo-teachers in the university classroom

    Singh, Divya; Singh, Avani (Globethics.net, 2022)
  • Resolving ethical dilemmas : 50 cases from Africa for teaching and training

    Nnamani, Tobe; Stückelberger, Christoph (Globethics.net, 2019)
    This is an honest, tough and practical book in which real people recount their real predicaments concerning poverty, sex, bribes, school fees, forced marriage, healers and traditional rites. Ethics is about what is good and bad. An ethical dilemma, however, is not a decision between good and bad but between bad solutions. The question then is which solution is the “least unethical”. This book presents 50 real-life cases in the contexts of scholarly, private, professional and public life. The cases in this book have been shared for teachers, students and professional practitioners, to be used in teaching and training or individual study, to test personal intuitions and encourage reflection on ethical decisions.
  • AI ethics and higher education : good practice and guidance for educators, learners, and institutions

    Green, Erin; Singh, Divya; Chia, Roland (Globethics.net, 2022)
    Artificial intelligence (AI) is exerting unprecedented pressure on the global higher educational landscape in transforming recruitment processes, subverting traditional pedagogy, and creating new research and institutional opportunities. These technologies require contextual and global ethical analysis so that they may be developed and deployed in higher education in just and responsible ways. To-date, these efforts have been largely focused on small parts of the educational environments leaving most of the world out of an essential contribution. This volume acts as a corrective to this and contributes to the building of competencies in ethics education and to broader, global debates about how AI will transform various facets of our lives, not the least of which is higher education.
  • On the concept of oikophilia : towards an organic environmentalism

    Bühlmann Quero, Jakob William (Globethics.net, 2022)
  • Walking with the earth : intercultural perspectives on ethics of ecological caring

    Haaz, Ignace; Ekué, Amélé Adamavi-Aho (Globethics.net, 2022)
    It is commonly believed that considering nature different from us, human beings (qua rational, cultural, religious and social actors), is detrimental to our engagement for the preservation of nature. An obvious example is animal rights, a deep concern for all living beings, including non-human living creatures, which is understandable only if we approach nature, without fearing it, as something which should remain outside of our true home. “Walking with the earth” aims at questioning any similar preconceptions in the wide sense, including allegoric-poetic contributions. We invited 14 authors from 4 continents to express all sorts of ways of saying why caring is so important, why togetherness, being-with each others, as a spiritual but also embodied ethics is important in a divided world.
  • Media ethics and the case of ethnicity : a contextual analysis in Plateau state, Nigeria

    Dewan, Andrew Danjuma (Globethics.net, 2022)
    Ethnic-based conflicts have continued to dot the global landscape. African countries and Nigeria, in particular, have been embroiled in these tidal waves of violent conflicts with cataclysmic consequences. Media Ethics and the Case of Ethnicity: A Contextual Analysis in Plateau State, Nigeria is a critical investigation into the participation of the newspaper journalists in reporting this intractable violent episode in Plateau State, Nigeria. Through deliberate use of lexical, phrases, stereotypes, frames, propaganda and litotes, journalists intensified the conflict. In this easy-to-read book, the author provides guidelines for conflict journalists which includes human rights consciousness journalism as pre-emptive approach to preventing conflicts before they turn violent.
  • Ethics in higher education : a key driver to recovery
 in a world living with COVID-19

    Howe Lopez, Lucy; Ekué, Amélé Adamavi-Aho (Globethics.net, 2022)
    This short discussion paper on Ethics in Higher Education as a Key Driver for Recovery in a World Living with COVID-19 is the result of a year-long consultation with contributions from experts and practitioners in the field. The higher education sector as a whole has been and continues to be challenged to adapt and to ensure that institutions and students are not only able to survive but to continue and to thrive. Ethics in higher education is at the heart of that dynamic process, serving to identify and address inequalities with ethics as the foundation of the effort to find solutions and to continue to envision a world in which responsible leadership with integrity is the norm. The Globethics.net Board of Foundation endorses this discussion paper and invites readers to engage with the critical issues, questions and recommendations made.
