  • Coronavirus and value pluralism : a robust ethical perspective on a pandemic

    Haaz, Ignace (Centre for the Study of World Religions (CSWR), established at Dharmaram Vidya Kshetram (DVK), Pontifical Athenaeum of Philosophy, Theology, and Canon Law, 2020)
    The fear of the largely unknown consequences of being exposed to coronavirus should have brought a more dynamic interplay of beliefs and opinions for those who in the footsteps of J.S. Mill believe that the limits of power, which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual, is to prevent harm to others (Mill, 1859, Introduction). To be kept in a room is an invitation to think or do things with a higher degree of intelligence, empathy and tact. Our surprise is that not much debate or critical interaction has taken place on the choice of locking down the majority of the populations of over 185 countries, after the outbreak of the newest Coronavirus (COVID-19). Instead of testing and isolating those who are sick, general lockdown occurred which could be seen as “a gross usurpation upon the liberty of private life” in the absence of a clear demonstration that lockdown is preventing some harm. The anthropologist Jean-Dominique Michel has recently unfold in a diachronic process the lockdown process (Michel, 2020), through his daily reporting, pointing out some the potentially harmful consequences of this choice. He has critically analysed the idea of an allegedly constructive and positive “social distancing”, which will have deep educational, economic, health consequences, without clearly having a grip on the overall pandemic, which rolls out without possible control. Le deep axiological and ethical question for philosophers is what type and degree of authority is needed during this period. Is it as Stoic philosophers many have thought self-discipline which is needed, as precondition “to follow the path of duty and virtue”? To resolve the struggle between liberty and authority would not yet mean rushing into blind and passive submission to drastic and non-useful constraints. In an authority based understanding severity means working harder, to do what is needed in order to “never permit [our] soul to be caught by […] pain” (Seneca, Clem., Nussbaum, 1994:426). Consequently, we should not accept to suspend critical thinking in order to remain loyal to any authority, which doesn’t mean not respecting public health policy measures. It means instead have the courage to affirm our resistance toward misconceptions, in particular if they are likely to have harmful consequences. Our article will review some of these problematic situations highlighting that no society is free or can achieve the objective of a fairly pluralistic set of values (including freedom of access to education, of a good health protection for all, or of having independent media and a credible press), without a given social practice of these values. No general basic liberties can be respected on the whole, as Mill claims, without some previous and gradual evolution can happen, namely before other more specific liberties have met sustainable social practice. Let’s show how this logic of spreading of values unfolds in the context of the Coronavirus crisis and the omnipresent focus on some physical spread of the disease, as it is always the case in infectious disease epidemics.
  • Valeurs éthiques en jeu dans la diplomatie économique africaine au 21ème siècle : liberté, justice et paix=Ethical values at stake in African economic diplomacy in the 21st century : freedom, justice and peace

    Ondji'i Toung, Richard,‏ ‎1964- (2020)
    Dans ses relations politiques et économiques bilatérales et multilatérales avec d’autres régions du monde, comment l’Afrique peut-elle comme une entité politique unique, faire entendre sa voix auprès de ses pairs pour négocier ou alors renégocier sa liberté, la justice dans ses rapports avec l’extérieur et la paix en son sein ? Telle est la question à laquelle cet article se propose de répondre. Il ne s’agit pas seulement de dire en quoi la liberté, la paix et la justice sont des préoccupations fondamentales pour l’Afrique dans ce petit village qu’est devenu le monde, mais aussi et surtout de dire comment y parvenir en vue du développement et du meilleur positionnement de ce continent sur la scène internationale.
  • Boas práticas na Administração Pública: uma análise do modelo de gestão da EBSERH à luz do modelo de governança pública

    Medeiros, Cíntia Rodrigues de Oliveira;; Fagundes, André Francisco Alcântara;; Lopes, José Eduardo Ferreira;; Siqueira, Marcus Vinicius Soares;; Oliveira, Ana Lorena Lobo (Universidade Federal de UberlândiaBrasilPrograma de Pós-graduação em Gestão Organizacional (Mestrado Profissional), 2020-05-08)
    The brazilian public management follows the changes brought about by the modernization
 movements perceived worldwide. The context prints a public administration model based on
 service efficiency, with the possibility of adopting good public governance practices. As a result
 of the modernization of practices is the Brazilian Hospital Services Company (EBSERH), a
 public company created to manage federal university hospitals. In this scenario, this dissertation
 proposed to evaluate, in the light of the public governance movement, the current management
 model adopted by EBSERH. The study was configured as a qualitative research, with the
 proposal of a public governance structure as a technological product. For the study in question,
 through documentary research, the documents produced by EBSERH, academic articles and
 reports about the institution were used as a data source. The analysis technique adopted was
 content analysis. The research was justified based on the premise that public governance and
 its principles of transparency, integrity, responsibility, accountability and equity are an
 alternative to improve the performance of institutions through a society that requires better
 performance from public managers. As results it was concluded that, through the documents
 produced by the company, the EBSERH emphasizes the principle of integrity to the detriment
 of others, compromising the entire public governance process demonstrated by the generation
 of value for society, which is hampered by the questioning of articles and reports about the
 provision of services, such as the use of the resources and lack of beds.
  • Regional Economic Communities in Africa as a Conflict Mitigation Mechanism: The Case of the Economic Community of West African States

    Akakpo, Jean-Marc (DigitalCommons@Kennesaw State University, 2020-05-06)
    The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is the regional institution mandated to develop economic and political integration between its 15 member states. ECOWAS expanded its mandate in the 1990s to include conflict prevention and mitigation. The Council of the Wise, a group of respected elders from ECOWAS member states, was created to engage in preventive diplomacy and is a unique institution based on African cultures’ respect for elders as mediators. The research question for this dissertation was: “What is the role of ECOWAS and the Council of the Wise in transforming conflict in West Africa, especially in Mali?” To explore this question, the researcher examined (1): the relationship between climate change, population growth, and conflict across West Africa; (2) the role of culture in the Malian conflict; and (3) perspectives of experts on the Council of the Wise’s role in mitigating the conflict in Mali. The methods included data abstraction from academic and policy documents and semi-structured interviews/focus group discussions with 80 international and regional conflict mitigation experts from academia, military, civil society, and communities, primarily in West Africa. The results of the study revealed a complex set of factors contribute to the conflict in Mali, and while the Council of the Wise is highly regarded as a culturally appropriate method of third-party preventive diplomacy, it suffers from lack of support. The conclusions include recommendations such as: ensuring adequate financing and logistical support, revising the selection criteria for Council members, providing tailored conflict prevention training, and documenting Council activities.
  • Competences for Environmental Sustainability:A Systematic Review on the Impact of Absorptive Capacity and Capabilities

    Dzhengiz, Tulin; Niesten, Eva (2020-12-03)
    Responsible management competences are the skills of managers to deal with the triple bottom line, stakeholder value and moral dilemmas. In this paper, we analyse how managers develop responsible management competences and how the competences interact with capabilities at the organisational level. The paper contributes to the responsible management literature by integrating research on absorptive capacity and organisational learning. By creating intersections between these disparate research streams, this study enables a better understanding of the development of responsible management competences. The paper is a systematic literature review on environmental competences, which are a type of responsible management competences referring to the managerial skills aimed at improving environmental sustainability. The findings demonstrate that managers who are able to recognize and acquire external knowledge develop environmental competences, and organisations capable of assimilating, transforming and exploiting knowledge develop environmental capabilities. The paper establishes that a dynamic and recursive relation exists between environmental competences and capabilities. Antecedents and contextual conditions specific to a sustainability context, such as eco-centric values and stakeholder pressures, influence the development of environmental competences. The study shows that environmental competences have a positive direct effect on environmental performance, and an indirect effect as a mediator between environmental capabilities and performance.
  • Progress and regress

    Mayr, Caroline Laura (2019)
    Die vorliegende Masterarbeit untersucht welche Faktoren die Erfüllung der Ziele für Nachhaltige Entwicklung von den Vereinten Nationen beeinflussen. In dem quantitativen Teil der Arbeit wird der Einfluss von einer guten Regierungsführung und dem BIP pro Kopf auf die Ziele für Nachhaltige Entwicklung getestet. Das Er-gebnis zeigt, dass vor allem eine gute Regierungsführung einen hohen Einfluss auf die Erfüllung der meisten Ziele hat. Dieses Ergebnis wird in dem qualitativen Teil der Arbeit an Hand von Beispielen getestet. Drei Staaten mit unterschiedlich hohen Regierungsführungswerten und drei Zielen für Nachhaltige Entwicklung werden un-tersucht. Dies zeigt auf, dass sich der quantitative Teil auch in der Realität bewei-sen kann.
  • Reformasi Birokrasi Sebagai Upaya Mewujudkan Good Governance Melalui Kerangka Otonomi Daerah

    Rifi Rivani Radiansyah (LPPM Universitas Islam Malang, 2020-04-01)
    Bureaucratic reform which initially existed to support the success of regional autonomy, in practice often creates inconsistency problems which actually give birth to paradoxes. So it happened in West Bandung Regency. On the other hand, the bureaucracy improves itself through the implementation of bureaucratic reform, but on the other hand it slows down the progress of the bureaucracy with the practice of corruption. This paper aims to find out the problems of bureaucratic reform and to find out whether the implementation of bureaucratic reform has shown optimal results in West Bandung Regency. This paper review uses qualitative methods through empirical normative-juridical approach and institutional theory approach. Data collection is done by official document collection techniques. Data analysis techniques in this study were carried out using interpretive descriptive methods. The results of the study in this paper show that the bureaucratic reform carried out by the West Bandung regency government through the practice of regional autonomy has not shown signs that are more optimal in the effort to realize Good Governance. Normatively, this condition is caused by the still low quality (competency) of apparatus resources, accompanied by other things that are mimetic and coercive which also influence the apparatus mentality as a whole based on their interests such as the influence of leadership, culture and the bureaucratic environment.

  • General Framework for Post-conflict Reconstruction in Yemen

    Abdulghani Gaghman (Technium Science, 2020-04-01)
    The war in Yemen, which escalated in March 2015 when a Saudi-led coalition intervened, with  comprehensive blockade and air campaign has turned a poor country into a humanitarian catastrophe. The impacts of the conflict in Yemen are devastating—with nearly a quarter of a million people killed directly by fighting and indirectly through lack of access to food, health services, and infrastructure.  The economy has collapsed, and fighting has ravaged the country’s infrastructure. The reconstruction and recovery of Yemen will demand rebuilding the economy, restoring state institutions and infrastructure and repairing the social fabric. Good governance plays a key role in rebuilding Yemen as a post-conflict state. The task is thus to build transparent, efficient and participative governance structures that can help to stabilise the volatile transformation of post-conflict society. This paper intends to clarify how good governance can be promoted in Yemen as conflict / post-conflict country and which role the political and administrative system could play in this context.  This paper is based on a literature review of the main theories and issues involved in post-conflict reconstruction, coupled with an analysis of relevant case studies and good practices from different countries. The main recommendations most urgently needed are; establishing safety and security, strengthening constitutional government, reconstructing infrastructure and restoring services, stabilizing and growing the economy, and strengthening justice and reconciliation organizations.

    The article explores the interface between good governance and sustainable development by focusing specifically on the role of governments in the global sustainable development agenda. With this context in mind, the purpose of this article is to highlight the role that governments should play in sustainable development in terms of the notions of ‘good’ governance as a prerequisite for a specific country’s ability and capacity to successfully plan and execute development initiatives, to participate in the global economy and to adhere to the imperatives that emanate from international treaties and conventions regarding sustainable development. The article adopted a qualitative observational approach by comparing, contrasting, critically analysing and synthesising relevant documentary and literature sources in terms of recent data, statistics and knowledge pertaining to a historical and regulatory overview directing good governance and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as the variables influencing global and African governments in pursuit of these goals. To eliminate bias and promote conceptual and contextual analysis, the research method also included specific unobtrusive research techniques, such as concept analysis, historical analysis and documentary analysis. The study found that the reforms pushed by the World Bank are not prioritised and that recipient countries, which are forced to implement them, are not given an idea of how long it would take to carry them out. As a result, recipient countries undertake a multitude of governance reforms at the same time, which are differentially supported by a plethora of donors. Often little thought is given to their sequencing, interdependence, or relative contributions to the overall goal of creating more efficient, effective and responsive governments. This is exacerbated by the fact that many developing countries do not have the required resources to successfully implement the reforms required for good governance.
  • Prinsip Good Governance Dalam Penyalahgunaan Wewenang

    Jemmy Jefry Pietersz (Universitas Pattimura, Fakultas Hukum, 2018-04-01)
    governance is a way implemented by the government using political, economic and administrative authority in managing economic and social resources for community development. The term governance is more directed to technical matters of governance in a country. By that, the term governance in relation to good governance is directed more towards legal aspects, especially administrative law which in essence more emphasized public service aspect which is addressed to society. Good governance characteristics include Participation, Rule of law, Transparency, Responsiveness, Consensus orientation, Equity, Effectiveness and efficiency, Accountability, and Strategic vision. These characteristics are legally sourced on two main grounds, namely the principle of the rule of law and the principle of democracy. The principle of the rule of law becomes the foundation of good governance where every act of government should have a legal basis, in the form of authority, procedure and substance and protection of human rights. The principle of a legal state provides the basis of legality in the administration of government, while the principle of democracy as the basis of government openness and community participation. Power or power essentially contains the rights and obligations of the apparatus of government to take certain legal actions, derived from attribution, delegation and mandate. Abuse of power is an act of government that is inconsistent with the purpose of authorization. the form of abuse of power consists of illegal state administration (onrechtmatige overheidsdaad), the misuse of the state administration (detournement de pouvoir or ultra vires) and the arbitrary acts of state administration (abus de droit). Abuse of power may occur against bound and free power. Parameters testing abuse of power from power are tied to the legality of government action, while the abuse of power from free power using the Good Governance Principles (GGP). GGP is the principle of proper administration
  • Pencatatan Perkawinan Di Indonesia Dikaitkan Dengan Good Governance

    Barzah Latupono (Universitas Pattimura, Fakultas Hukum, 2019-02-01)
    Marriage registration carried out by marriage registrar employees is often not in accordance with the rules set out in the Act. The law requires that the marriage record be carried out if it has fulfilled the legal requirements for marriage. There are cases of marriages that do not meet the legal requirements of marriage and there are also marriages that meet the legal requirements of marriage but are not stated. State apparatus in various service sectors, especially those concerning the fulfillment of civil rights and basic needs of the community, must be carried out in accordance with the mandate of the 1945 Constitution. Marriage records, such as the making of National Identity Cards or Driving Permits, actually discuss public services that are the responsibility of the state. So that it should pay attention to the principle of good governance, one of which is to establish costs that are in accordance with the standard of living of the people and procedures that are not user-friendly.
  • Public Participation in the Trade Regime: of Litigation, Frustration,Agitation and Legitimation

    Dunoff, Jeffrey L.; KÜÇÜK ŞENGÜR, Esin (Ankara ÜniversitesiAnkara University, 2007-03-01)
    The world trade system is in turmoil, in part over the issue of public participation. This short article reviews the history of public participation in WTO dispute resolution, and an interesting strategic move that civil society took in response to the lack of citizen participation at the WTO. The paper then explains why the debate over public participation is so important, and why it has come to the fore at this time. Stated somewhat less abstractly, the paper explains why the debate over public participation is a story about litigation, frustration, agitation and legitimation
