  • The Impact of Secondary Schooling in Kenya : A Regression Discontinuity Analysis

    Ozier, Owen (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2015-08-17)
    This paper estimates the impacts of
 secondary school on human capital, occupational choice, and
 fertility for young adults in Kenya. The probability of
 admission to government secondary school rises sharply at a
 score close to the national mean on a standardized 8th grade
 examination, permitting the estimation of causal effects of
 schooling in a regression discontinuity framework. The
 analysis combines administrative test score data with a
 recent survey of young adults to estimate these impacts. The
 results show that secondary schooling increases human
 capital, as measured by performance on cognitive tests
 included in the survey. For men, there is a drop in the
 probability of low-skill self-employment, as well as
 suggestive evidence of a rise in the probability of formal
 employment. The opportunity to attend secondary school also
 reduces teen pregnancy among women.

  • Pepi, Luci, Bom, and Dark Habits: Lesbian "Families" in the films of Pedro Almodóvar

    Difrancesco, María (Digital Commons @ IC, 2009-02-26)
    Film critics and scholars alike have accepted Pedro Almodovar's Pepi, Luci, Bom, and Dark Habits as highlighting the erotic fixations of a subculture that would have remained silent under Franco. Nonetheless, I see these films as important for their ability to shed light on the Spanish contemporary family. The power dynamics that evolve between female characters in these films illustrate how same-sex couples come together, expand, and re-create alternative family configurations in Spain. I make the case that although these alternative families may not prove to be any less functional than traditional patriarchal families, through them Almodóvar compels viewers to reassess the purpose and crucial role that the family plays within Spanish society.

  • The lifting of “pontifical secrecy” and the relationship between the state and Church systems of justice in the subject matter of sex offences against minors

    Piotr Majer (Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu Szczecińskiego, 2020-01-01)
    The article describes the issue of the relationship between the Catholic Church’s judicial system and the national law enforcement authorities and judiciary powers after 6 December 2019, when Pope Francis lifted the so-called “pontifical secrecy” concerning canon criminal cases of clerics accused of sexually abusing minors. After a brief outline of the regulations re- ferring to the institution of secrecy in the canonical legal order and arguments justifying the need to keep it, the author presents certain provisions on pontifical secrecy and the conse- quences of lifting it for the relationship between the state and the Church’s system of justice.
  • Le crime de sollicitation réinventé

    Desmazières, Agnès (Éditions de l’EHESSArchives de sciences sociales des religions, 2021-04-22)
    Sous l’effet d’une judiciarisation croissante, le crime de sollicitation – qui vise traditionnellement la sollicitation sexuelle par des prêtres de pénitents et pénitentes dans le cadre du sacrement de confession – connaît une mue dans la première moitié du xxe siècle. Le souci de rigueur affiché par le Saint-Office traduit une préoccupation croissante pour les abus sexuels commis par des clercs. Il se heurte toutefois à des résistances locales de la part des évêques et, plus encore, des supérieurs religieux. La sacralité se déplace progressivement du sacrement vers les corps, à commencer par celui des prêtres, mais aussi celui des victimes, surtout si elles sont vierges. L’association, faite dans la procédure du Saint-Office, entre crime de sollicitation et abus sexuels sur mineurs a toutefois contribué à empêcher la mise au jour de la spécificité de ce dernier crime.

  • L’Église catholique en travail de discernement face aux unions homosexuelles

    Bordeyne, Philippe (2021)
    La position du magistère catholique sur le mariage n’ayant varié ni sur le mariage, ni sur la sexualité hors mariage, les personnes homosexuelles sont invitées à renoncer au mariage et à vivre dans la continence. Toutefois, l’encouragement du pape François à une pastorale de meilleure intégration de toutes les personnes à la communauté ecclésiale, incite à reconsidérer au plan moral la situation des baptisés qui, du fait de leur homosexualité, ne peuvent accéder au mariage. En s’appuyant sur les exhortations apostoliques Amoris laetitia et Gaudete et exsultate, l’article énonce quelques principes de discernement moral et spirituel pour aborder de telles situations, ce qui conduit à envisager la possibilité de donner certaines formes de bénédiction à des personnes homosexuelles engagées dans une union civile.
  • Magical Transition? : Intergenerational Educational and Occupational Mobility in Rural China, 1988–2002

    Emran, Shahe; Sun, Yan (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2015-07-17)
    This paper presents evidence on
 intergenerational educational and occupational mobility in
 rural China over a period of 14 years (1988–2002). To
 understand whether the estimated inter-generational
 persistence can be driven solely by unobserved
 heterogeneity, biprobit sensitivity analysis and
 heteroskedasticity-based identification are implemented. The
 empirical results show that there have been dramatic
 improvements in occupational mobility from agriculture to
 nonfarm occupations; a farmer’s children are not any more
 likely to become farmers in 2002, although there was
 significant persistence in occupation choices in 1988. In
 contrast, the intergenerational mobility in educational
 attainment has remained largely unchanged for daughters, and
 it has deteriorated significantly for sons. There is strong
 evidence of a causal effect of parental education on a son’s
 schooling in 2002. The paper provides some possible
 explanations for the dramatic divergence between
 occupational and educational mobility in rural China from
 1988 to 2002.

  • A Multi-Disciplinary Analysis of Catholic Social Teaching with Implications for Engineering and Technology

    Justin Anderson; Fr. Joseph R. Laracy; Thomas Marlowe (International Institute of Informatics and Cybernetics, 2020-12-01)
    In this article we view Catholic Social Teaching (CST) in the larger context of history, culture, philosophy and theology, and social services, and consider three perspectives on its modern instantiation: social science and economics, modal and non-monotonic logics, and second-order cybernetics. We then apply these perspectives to questions of interest in the field of software engineering and issues of digital (or network) security as well as intellectual property. In each application scenario, there are potential conflicts between the rights and dignity of differing individuals and groups. We conclude that CST allows for ethical navigation of such conflicts and offers many helpful insights.
  • A Igreja católica em Nampula pós-independência : experiência eclesial do povo Macua

    Ferreira, António Manuel Antunes de Matos; Patrício, Albino (2021-04-08)
    A dissertação que temos entre mãos é o resultado de uma pesquisa na qual o
 objetivo fundamental é analisar a Igreja Católica em Nampula no período da pós-
 Independência, com especial incidência na experiência eclesial do povo macua. A
 centralidade deste trabalho reside, assim, no progresso obtido pela Igreja Católica na sua
 relação com o povo macua. Este trabalho tem quatro capítulos. No primeiro capítulo
 analisamos a origem e as religiões tradicionais do povo macua, a sua organização social e a
 sua pertença à comunidade cristã. No segundo capítulo apresentamos a noção de uma Igreja
 de viragem desde as vésperas da Independência, pós-independência e as atrocidades que
 houve até a guerra civil. No terceiro capítulo tratamos do tema da Igreja Católica na
 atualidade, dos progressos obtidos e das suas atividades pastorais. Por último, no quarto
 capítulo, abordamos os desafios atuais como a proliferação de confissões religiosas de origem
 cristã na arquidiocese, a receção dos acordos de Roma e perspetivamos o seu futuro

  • THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE IN THE ENCYCLICAL ‘EVANGELIUM VITAE’ BY JOHN PAUL II

    Anna Laputko ("Scientific Information Agency "Science-technologies-information" LLC, 2021-01-01)
    In the encyclical “Evangelium Vitae”, Pope John Paul II bases his message on the Scriptures, as is customary in formulating the doctrine or moral compendium of the Christian church. Jesus Christ, the mystery of the incarnation of the Logos, is the basis for understanding the value of human life from conception to natural death. The encyclical reveals attempts to reduce the value of life, which includes war, violence, abuse of bioethical aspects (abortion, euthanasia).
  • Le célibat ecclésiastique offensé au sein du clergé paroissial de la France septentrionale (XVIè début XIXè siècle)

    CNRS; Université de Lille; Dumortier, Cindy-Sarah (2021-04-02)
    Dans la problématique, désormais classique, s'efforçant de comprendre la situation religieuse de la France à l'époque moderne, la question des mentalités du personnel ecclésiastique apparaît comme essentielle. En effet, les membres du clergé paroissial soudent la relation des fidèles avec l'Église et Dieu et sont astreints à respecter un idéal de perfection. Néanmoins, de nombreux hommes de Dieu sont avant tout des hommes et n'hésitent pas alors à renier leurs vœux de chasteté et de célibat, à prendre compagne et à se comporter comme de simples laïcs. Ces comportements jugés scandaleux, par les autorités ecclésiastiques, reflètent combien la réalité s'éloigne de la législation synodale, mais aussi de l'attente des paroissiens ; il est donc essentiel de déchiffrer ces actes par rapport à l'attitude définie par les autorités religieuses mais aussi d'établir des comparaisons afin de rendre compte des diverses entorses à la chasteté commises.Observer le clergé sous l'angle de sa conformité aux normes morales et judiciaires de son époque, considérer les ecclésiastiques avant tout comme des humains, des hommes capables de pulsions et de sentiments envers des êtres de chair dans une perspective à la fois diachronique et comparative, tel est l'objet de cette thèse.
