Abstract:
"Ce livre est une invitation à humaniser la violence. Bien qu'elle soit le moyen d'expression devenu courant dans la Province du Nord-Kivu en République Démocratique du Congo, la violence n'est pas une fatalité. Répondre à la violence par la violence serait rentrer dans une spirale de violence. Mais opposer à la violence le pardon qui débouche sur la réconciliation, voilà ce que c'est l'humanisation de la violence dans la mesure où le concept de réconciliation appelle à devenir l'autre."

The results indicate that Africans are happy with Chinese investment in that it contributes to development. They are, however, concerned about its economic, workplace, social and environmental impacts.

An archipelago of more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia is one of the most diverse countries in the world. It includes hundreds of languages, cultures and religions, including the world's largest Muslim population (more than the whole Middle East put together).

This rich Indonesian experience is an important global resource in learning to deal with diversity.
