  • 蓝色伦理 : 可持续和公平的水资源利用和管理之伦理视角 = Blue ethics : ethical perspectives on sustainable, fair water resources use and management

    Girardin, Benoît; Fiechter-Widemann, Evelyn (Globethics.net, 2022)
    对于众多政策制定者、城市管理者、水务专家、技术人员或者活动家而 言,水管理的伦理视角并不重要,或者说没有任何附加价值。两方阵营 的一场争论似乎僵持不下,一方主要强调所有人的用水权,而另一方认 为不能超越现实的经济情况。某种资源的可持续利用,在开采、分配和 回收利用方面面临越来越大的压力,这些方面虽然说不上是一个技术官 僚问题,但却像是一个技术性问题。 本合著著作提出了不同的观点。用水以及资源的可持续利用的许多问题 取决于开诚布公的谈判,解决冲突和关税结构,同时扩大水的交付和公 平管理水的稀缺问题。在所有这些过程之中,伦理价值至关重要。
  • 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.
  • Ética del agua : perspectivas éticas en torno al uso y la gestión sustentables y equitativos del agua como recurso

    Girardin, Benoît; Fiechter-Widemann, Evelyne (Globethics.net, 2021)
    Para muchos responsables políticos, gestores urbanos, expertos en agua, técnicos o activistas, las perspectivas éticas en la gestión del agua no son importantes o no aportan ningún valor añadido. Parecería que el debate se ha estancado entre los que hacen hincapié en el derecho de acceso al agua para todos y los que no pueden ir más allá del realismo económico. El uso sostenible de un recurso que está sometido a una presión creciente —en términos de extracción, asignación y reciclaje— se suele presentar como una cuestión puramente técnica, por no decir tecnocrática. Este libro colectivo afirma lo contrario. Las numerosas cuestiones que plantea el acceso al agua, así como el uso sostenible del recurso, se basan en negociaciones abiertas, en la resolución de conflictos, en la estructura de las tarifas, al tiempo que se amplía el suministro y en la gestión justa de la escasez de agua. En todos estos procesos, los valores éticos son importantes.

  • Theology of work and development : the theological and ecological responsibility of the Church in sustainable development

    Kansiime, Elly (Globethics.net, 2020)
    This piece of work focuses on the role of the church in sustainable development. The church is a major player because of the big numbers that constitute her institution. She has an everyday opportunity, and over binding responsibility to fulfill her ministry mandate. The church is one of the front line players in development, and her place is vital because she is supposed to engage a holistic role in development, more than any other player does. The author looks at development from a divine perspective, and expects all developers, to integrate the biblical teaching so that it can make meaning theologically and ecologically to sustain holistic development.
  • Le rôle de l'Église maronite dans la construction du Liban : 1500 ans d’histoire, du Ve au XXe siècle

    Ostermann, Didier (Globethics.net, 2020)
    L’auteur étudie en premier lieu l’organisation de l’Église maronite du Liban, et cherche à démontrer l’incidence de celle-ci sur la construction de l’État libanais. Cette visée méthodologique l’induit ensuite à remonter à l’origine de l’Église maronite dès le Ve siècle en Syrie, puis enfin à s’intéresser à son développement dans la Montagne libanaise jusqu’en 1920. La thèse centrale soutenue est que cette période de l’histoire est à même d’éclairer le Liban d’aujourd’hui, comme elle l’a fait de manière exemplaire jusqu’au Pacte National de 1943. C’est dans ce Moyen-Orient, composé d’une forte prédominance du religieux dans les rapports entre groupes que le Liban prend forme, avec ses réalités géopolitiques et ses enjeux stratégiques. Afin de réaliser cette recherche, l’auteur a effectué de nombreux voyages au Liban, parcourant celui-ci en bus, ou à pied par exemple dans la Qadisha - la Vallée Sainte - difficilement accessible au sein de la Montagne chrétienne.
  • Éthique de l’eau : pour un usage et une gestion justes et durables des ressources en eau

    Girardin, Benoît; Fiechter-Widemann, Evelyne (Globethics.net, 2020)
  • 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.

  • MyLeadership IV

    Stückelberger, Christoph (Globethics.net, 2014)
    Codes of conduct are voluntary agreements with the aim of committing a person or an organisation to respect certain values and rules. They can be developed and implemented by a person or an organisation or existing codes can be signed by people and organisations. Therefore, they have the advantage of being developed and implemented in a fast way. They have the disadvantage of not being as binding as laws with their sanction mechanisms. Therefore, the credibility of each code of conduct depends on serious monitoring by the signing parties. Without it, it remains a nice piece of paper, for superficial window dressing. In this case it does not increase credibility but rather suspicion against those who sign a code.

  • Day After Day

    Brenifier, Oscar (Globethics.net, 2019)
    One can philosophize through lengthy explanations and towering treaties. But there is another tradition: that of the aphorism, the art of the fragment. To make the reader think through one or a few brief sentences, a digest of thought that tries to capture in few words a vivid problematic, in a striking form. Often critical, ironic or mocking, this laconic form of philosophical expression is generous because it is trusting: the reader will understand mere implicit meaning; he will read between the lines. And when will be highlighted the sordid of the human soul, he will not be sad but joyful, for consciousness makes us free. The issue is to reconcile with our own finitude, to accept our own humanity, for better and for worse. The 356 aphorisms featured in these pages demand of the reader the above mentioned disciplined thought and reflection
  • African Church Assets Handbook

    Stückelberger, Christoph; Ogara, William Otiende; Mawudor, Bright (Globethics.net, 2018)
    Churches in Africa have vast assets: agricultural land and prime land in cities, real estate in schools, universities, hospitals, churches etc. How can these institutions become less dependent on donations by increasing revenue from these assets? Theological visions, ethical values, planning skills, integrity leadership, fair elections, professional governing structures, anti-corruption mechanisms, innovative strategies and investment partnerships are needed to aid such developments. This handbook offers conceptual knowledge, practical solutions and case studies, written by practitioners for practitioners in churches: pastors/priests, leaders, finance officers, asset managers, donor agencies, students and all those engaged for professional, innovative, efficient and faith-based asset management of churches and church-related organisations.
