  • Missional encounter : approach for ministering to invisible peoples

    W’Isuka, Paul K. Musolo (Globethics.net, 2021)
    This book explores Christian mission and the Mbuti Pygmies, a sub-group of Central African Pygmies who are mostly forest dwellers. The Pygmies are often still unseen and discriminated against, and as consequence, still remain unreached and unchurched. The missional encounter to reach and minister to the invisible is the key focus of this research. In order to minister to this population, this book proposes that mission among and for Pygmies should be conceived and practiced in the light of new paradigms in relation to the concept of conversion. Theological education should be a holistic Christ-like approach to reach and minister to the invisible.

  • La justice climatique restaurative : réparer les inégalités Nord/Sud

    Elloué, Nestor Engone (Globethics.net, 2020)
    La reconnaissance des inégalités climatiques commande de penser une justice climatique Nord/Sud appropriée, et de rechercher une réponse adéquate aux besoins réels du Sud global. Ni la justice climatique distributive et ni la justice climatique corrective ne permettent de répondre convenablement à la nature multidimensionnelle de ces besoins. Face à ces limites la justice climatique restaurative a trois atouts principaux  : 1) de mieux intégrer la responsabilité historique du Nord dans le traitement des injustices climatiques. 2) Elle permet de se recentrer sur les besoins de justice des victimes climatiques du Sud : besoins de réparation, besoins de distribution, besoins de reconnaissance, besoins de participation et besoins d’assistance. Et enfin 3), elle permet d’inclure une dimension préventive au processus de justice.
  • The struggle for women empowerment through education : in the novels Second Class Citizen (1974) by Buchi Emecheta and Das verborgene Wort (2001) by Ulla Hahn

    Ogbuehi, Mary Rose-Claret (Globethics.net, 2020)
    Women are subjected to all kinds of violence, such as rape, forced marriage, forced identity, dependence, and a lack of freedom of expression, giving rise to the status of women as second-class citizens. Despite this gloomy picture, women across cultures agree that this denigration can only be stopped and reversed if those who are victims are educated so that they can discuss the problems, proffer solutions, and see to their implementation. Many female authors write about the trauma that women undergo and the various ways in which women are marginalized in a male-dominated society. This thesis is based on novels by two female authors, Second Class Citizen (1974) by Buchi Emecheta from Ibuzo, Nigeria, and Das verborgene Wort (2001) by Ulla Hahn from Kirchhundem, Sauerland, Germany. It critically discusses the subjugation of women and violence against them through the prism of the novels’ main characters.
  • Sustainable peacebuilding strategies : peacebuilding operations in Nakuru County, Kenya : contribution to the Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (CJPC)

    Muia, Florence (Globethics.net, 2020)
    Kenya has experienced ethnic based violence since the restoration of multi-partypolitical system in 1991 with violent conflicts erupting every five years after election. This book illuminates many issues that hinder Peacebuilding and the reasons why peace remains elusive in Africa and many other parts of the world despite so much discussions on the same, peace-keeping tropes and shuttle diplomacies and treaties being signed. This study sought to: assess the effectiveness of peacebuilding strategies applied in CJPC interventions in Nakuru County.
  • 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”.
  • 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.
  • Etica 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.

  • Les héroïnes sans couronne

    Ngongo, Kilongo Fatuma (Globethics.net, 2015)
    Les femmes, c’est ça l’Église! Ces dernières décennies se caractérisent par la reconnaissance de la place prépondérante qu’occupent les femmes dans la bonne marche communautaire des sociétés à travers le monde, que ce soit sur le plan politique, économique et religieux. Cette thèse de doctorat historique, empirique, missiologique et éthique montre le rôle clef des femmes dans une église pentecôtiste en Afrique Centrale entre 1921 et 2011. Le service dans tous les domaines et l’absence des femmes dans les organes de décisions sont les grandes caractéristiques du leadership de femmes. La consécration des femmes au ministère pastoral reste un défi. Le livre est un appel bien-fondé pour un nouveau paradigme du genre et de coopération des femmes et des hommes dans les églises.
  • Le Prophète Michée face à la corruption des classes dirigeantes

    Alagbada, Ibiladé Nicodème (Globethics.net, 2013)
    Les contextes sociopolitique, économique et religieux du 8ème siècle av. J.-C. ont favorisé l’éclosion de la corruption aux multiples facettes dans le royaume de Juda. Elle atteint toutes les instances dirigeantes. Le prophète Michée, face à cette corruption des classes dirigeantes et animé par le soue de Dieu, rempli de courage, de force et d’esprit de jugement, se présente comme un paradigme de la responsabilité ou de l’autorité prophétique de l’Eglise face à la corruption. Ainsi, dans la perspective michéenne, la lutte contre la corruption est une lutte pour le rétablissement du droit divin et de la justice sociale tant sur le plan civil, politique que religieux, dont l’initiative vient du Soue de Dieu.
  • Right to Food Ethics

    Omukaga, Jude Likori (Globethics.net, 2015)
    The question of hunger world-wide is a striking paradox: Why should the world that enjoys a radically advanced human civilization still face threats of disease and death from hunger and starvation? This paradox provokes three other related questions: Firstly, what exactly does hunger as a world problem consist in, and how does it come about? Secondly, the persistence of this paradox compels the question as to whether there have been attempts to its solution: What are these attempts, and why does hunger still persist? In the same regard, particular curiosity falls on the role of the Church: How does the Church interpret the persistence of hunger in the light of Christian theology and in the tradition of its social teaching? What hope does the Church’s social teaching offer as a way forward? Thirdly, this paradox provokes society’s general estimation of its ability and commitment to eradicate hunger especially from the point of view of the areas most affected: What more needs to be done to alleviate hunger?
  • Social Ecology, Ecojustice and the New Testament

    Sintado, Carlos Alberto (Globethics.net, 2015)
    Our planet Earth is going through an unprecedented crisis. The current ecological predicament is such that has the potential to annihilate life. Social ecology tries to understand the reasons why we have reached this point as well as suggests new ways to overcome the crisis. Ecojustice is a reflection on principles and on resources to confront the current world situation. Does the Bible say anything or contribute to this particular situation? This dissertation reads selected New Testament texts, using the key tenets of Social Ecology and ecojustice as a basic hermeneutical framework. As witness of the story of God’s good creation and of the pilgrimage of God’s people, the Bible is providing a critical contribution to justice and peace and to the people’s commitment to safeguard God’s creation.
  • Ethnonationalism and Conflict Resolution

    Kibiswa, Naupess K. (Globethics.net, 2015)
    Based on evidence collected and analyzed about repetitive armed conflicts in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa, Dr. Kibiswa establishes in this book that Bany2 armed group leaders, involved in insurgencies, fit into the two Van Evera’s criteria of ethnonationalist groups. Indeed, they display more loyalty to their ethnic group than to the DRC nation and are moved by their desire to achieve statehood. As such, this underlying motivation of their never-ending fights is hard for the DRC nation to accommodate, while their geographic proximity to their fatherland as well as the availability of natural resources provide them with favorable conditions and easy means to believe in the success of their secessionist project. So, they keep trying and waging war repeatedly.
  • Appellations johanniques de Jésus dans l’Apocalypse

    Kashindi, Mulolwa (Globethics.net, 2015)
    Cette thèse en théologie sonde la christologie, c’est-à-dire l’étude de la personne, de la doctrine et de l’oeuvre de Jésus Christ. Elle vise à éclairer les appellations données à Jésus à travers l’évangile de Jean dans l’Apocalypse. Une comparaison est présentée entre l’analyse herméneutique classique de ces titres et une lecture spécifique Bafuliiru, selon la compréhension de ce peuple d’Afrique. Plusieurs questions cruciales animent cette étude: premièrement pourquoi l’auteur de l’Apocalypse multiplie les appellations de Jésus? Deuxièmement ressortent les interrogations sous-jacentes des raisons pour lesquelles, dans l’Apocalypse, Jésus ne revendique pas des noms symboliques comme dans le quatrième évangile. Troisièmement, l’auteur met à l’épreuve la traduction de ce texte par les Bafuliiru, et mesure si elle conserve une compréhension similaire de ces noms.

  • Justice climatique et interdiction de nuire

    Piguet, Frédéric-Paul (Globethics.net, 2014)
    Justice climatique et interdiction de nuire constitue une synthèse interdisciplinaire d'une ampleur rare. L'auteur a médité les thèmes clés des sciences de l'environnement dont il agence le propos de façon organique et structurée, l'érudition servant toujours à cerner sa question principale. Il montre les insuffisances de la justice distributive et la pertinence de l'intervention du principe d'interdiction de nuire dans le dossier climatique. En reconnaissant la biosphère comme support de vie commun des êtres humains, ce livre introduit une rupture épistémologique que la philosophie morale n'avait pas encore répercutée avec une telle puissance. Saura-t-il lancer et soutenir un débat nécessaire ?
  • Philosophical Premises for African Economic Development

    Ntibagirirwa, Symphorien (Globethics.net, 2014)
    The focus of this research is the cultural assumptions underpinning Africa’s strategies of economic development, taking the Lagos Plan of Action (LPA) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) as case studies. It considers the issue whether the neglect of Africa’s cultural beliefs and values in African plans and policies of economic development may not lead to a development impasse. Accordingly, three major objectives are pursued. The first objective is to attempt a critical assessment of the two strategies of economic development, LPA and NEPAD, against the background of theories of economic development that informed them respectively and their cultural assumptions. Using both a theoretical reflection and an empirical approach, I argue that LPA and NEPAD relied on theories of economic development whose cultural foundations are not African. Consequently, although they were designed in Africa, their respective philosophical bases are not African.
