Divya Singh / Christoph Stückelberger (Eds.)
ISBN 978-2-88931-164-4

The values and virtues practised in universities heavily influence the leaders of the future, but outside the limelight of excelling education institutions there is a concerning violation of good practises and rise in unethical behaviour. This book offers diverse insights from 19 different authors, writing from eight countries in five continents, providing explanations and recommendations for the ethical crisis present around the world which can be mitigated by suitable education in ethics, particularly in higher education institutions.

Chinese Civil Society (2016)

Liu Baocheng
ISBN 978-2-88931-168-2

The very notion of Chinese civil society could be a subject of controversy: media control, social inequality, judicial independence are hitherto a subject of critical scrutiny. Although conventional media (newspaper, radio and TV) has been under grip by the Chinese communist party, e-participation (micro-blogs, Chinese netizens) has made its way into every corner of China, unlike in other socialist countries such as North Korea and Cuba. Despite the ambivalence of government attitudes at different stages, the positive role of civil organizations has been repeatedly affirmed by various documents and political leaders in China. The paradigm of Chinese NGOs is experiencing an efflorescence. It is too early to foretell in which trajectory they shall evolve. However, one thing is certain: they are growing and reconfiguring, but they do not have to, nor might they ever, meet the standard definition in the liberal western textbook.

Regional Organisations and Sustainable Governance of Mineral Resources in Tanzania (2016)

Conrad John Masabo
ISBN 978-2-88931-152-1

In today's global scene, there are obvious manifests of the changing perceptions and views over resource discourse. The negative image of resource as ‘a curse' is giving way to a more positive approach, stressing on the potential transformational role that resources can play in the processes of development. This has influenced the prominence of governance agenda and mineral resources governance in Africa in particular and the role of regional organisations in mineral resources governance. As such, regional organisations are rapidly acquiring more power that has positioned them to prescribe, promote and protect standards of governance in different sectors including mining sectors in member states, irrespective of their original purposes. This book examines the contribution of African regional organisations in governance of the mineral sector in Tanzania.

Démocratie électorale en Afrique subsaharienne Entre droit, pouvoir et argent (2016)

Pascal Mukonde Musulay
ISBN 978-2-88931-156-9

Cet ouvrage souligne l'importance de la démocratie électorale rigoureuse, avec un accent sur la perspective panafricaine-subsaharienne et l'interaction entre l'Occident et l'Afrique. L'auteur montre que les élections sont un test pour la démocratie dans un contexte africain, dont les mécanismes géopolitiques, économiques et juridiques sont finement analysés, dans leur dernière actualité. Ainsi apparaissent en toute clarté les contraintes d'une part, les impasses, les jeux politiques et d'autre part l'évidence de la solution dans le mode d'organisation d'élections subsahariennes. Un outil de compréhension pour étudiants, enseignants et chercheurs; Mukonde offre aussi un éclairage utile pour saisir un processus irrésistible qui concerne les politiciens, la communauté internationale, la société civile et les organisations religieuses.

Work Motivation and Pro-Social Behavior in the Delivery of Public Services (2016)

Nicoleta Acatrinei
ISBN 978-2-88931-150-7

Motivating civil servants is a key issue in the delivery of public services. Issues such as efficiency, performance, anti-corruption and quality of public services are highly dependent on the motivation of employees in public services. How to motivate them in order to better fulfill the objectives of public agencies? This research is original by proposing, thanks to a structural equation modelling, a global work motivational model allowing the disentanglement of intrinsic and extrinsic work motivations and their inner interactions. She shows how and when these types of motivation impact positively or negatively various work related outcomes, such as prosocial behavior, anti-corruption behavior, job satisfaction, altruistic behavior at work which are sources of efficiency and ethics in government activities.

La sovranità è un principio universale fondato sull'esercizio di tutti i diritti dell'uomo interdipendenti; essa si realizza attraverso molteplici cooperazioni.

Questa sintesi si presenta come una guida teorica destinata ai responsabili delle politiche e delle strutture pubbliche, delle organizzazioni della società civile e delle imprese, ai professionisti che si occupano della stesura interattiva dei progetti, del loro accompagnamento e della loro valutazione, e, infine ai responsabili della formazione e agli studenti.

Les fondements éthiques du féminisme: réflexions à partir du contexte africain (2016)

Fifamè Fidèle Houssou Gandonou
ISBN 978-2-88931-138-5

Qu'y a-t-il d'inacceptable aujourd'hui, en Afrique comme ailleurs, dans la condition féminine? Le féminisme bien compris est une réponse à cette question et un effort pratique pour relever le défi d'une injustice criarde, qui maintient la femme dans l'infériorité. L'auteure de cette dissertation présente la clé de compréhension de ce problème social comme une variante du combat contre l'inégalité, où l'éthique déontologique universelle est centrale avec son exigence de dignité pour tous. La première partie du texte évoque la condition féminine en Afrique, la seconde présente l'histoire et l'évolution du féminisme sous différentes formes, enfin la troisième partie, intitulée "Le féminisme, une question éthique et théologique" se concentre sur la déconstruction de l'éthique classique épurée de toute idéologie masculiniste.

Intelligence Reform in the Post-Dictatorial Democratic Republic of Congo (2016)

John Kasuku
ISBN 978-2-88931-120-0

While the current body of knowledge on the role of intelligence services in post-colonial Africa emphazises the protection of dictatorial regimes and poor governance of the security sector as the main contributing factors to the inefficiency and ineffectiveness of African intelligence services, this book offers a critical analysis of the missions assigned to intelligence agencies during different periods of DRC's political history and demonstrates that Congolese intelligence services rather efficiently protected Western interests during the Cold War period, when the West was competing with the Soviet Union over the control of the African continent. During this period, for over three decades, they incidentally protected the political leadership, which is the key role for intelligence services in virtually all states.

Identités territoriales et conflits dans la province du Sud-Kivu,
R.D. Congo (2016)

Bosco Muchukiwa
ISBN 978-2-88931-112-5

Les territoires de Fizi, de Kalehe et d'Uvira sont des foyers de conflits au Sud-Kivu (R.D. Congo); ils ont racines dans le processus d'organisation de l'espace politique à l'époque coloniale. La reconfiguration de l'espace a produit des nouvelles entités territoriales et administratives (les chefferies agrandies, les secteurs et les territoires) qui sont des réalités sociologiques et politiques. La méconnaissance des différences entre le territoire ethnique et étatique et entre peuples autochtones et allochtones est un adjuvant de conflits. Quelques pistes susceptibles d'orienter des actions pour la paix sociale sont exposées; elles passent par l'exigence éthique préalable d'une reconnaissance réciproque des organisations territoriales, de l'histoire des peuples et d'une prise en considération des normes de droit.

Federalism in Nigeria: Between Divisions in Conflict and Stability in Diversity (2016)

Monica Emmanuel
ISBN 978-2-88931-106-4

Nigeria is a product of the amalgamation of Northern and Southern British protectorates, that is the primary cause of the Nigeria's political instability, ethnoreligious divisions and underdevelopment. Adopting a pragmatic constitutional approach that institutionalizes federal constitution would produce a promising political mechanism for addressing ethnic, cultural and religious diversity. Meanwhile the adoption of relevant political structure should be guided by the ethical and political comparative advantages of many different political structures. The originality of this doctoral research is based on findings from data analyses that show positive dispositions of respondents to adoption of a federal constitution to achieve stability in diversity and the current operation of unitary constitution as inappropriate. The study underlines that adoption and implementation of a federal constitution, fiscal federalism and secularism is sine-qua-non.

These papers in which the participants reflect their experience show both this engagement and the diversity of their contexts. The papers deal with a variety of themes such as: pilgrimage, Asian Christology, food insecurity, just peace and the shift of the center of gravity of Christianity to the Global South. The collection of these papers provides significant insights into the challenges faced by the ecumenical movement and the prospects for its future. More particularly they articulate the perspective of a new generation of leaders in the ecumenical movement whose voice needs to be heard."
