Call for papers - Theological perspectives and models for addressing corruption

Invitation to authors of papers on theological perspectives and models for addressing corruption 

We are writing to invite expressions of interest from authors of papers on theological perspectives and models for addressing corruption, for presentation at a global consultation in 2018.

Background

In September 2016 a group of experts and practitioners from across the world spent three days at the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies examining ways of combining research and practical transformational responses to the problem of corruption. One output from this was a conclusion that we should produce publications which describe diverse theological perspectives and diverse models for addressing corruption. We are now seeking authors who can draft these publications, from five different theological traditions: Roman Catholic, Mainline Protestant, Evangelical, Pentecostal or Orthodox.

Person specification for authors
Essential

  1. An adherent of the theological tradition about which they are writing (Roman Catholic, Mainline

    Protestant, Evangelical, Pentecostal or Orthodox)

  2. Masters or doctorate degree in a field broadly relevant to Christian faith and public integrity

  3. A published author in a field broadly relevant to Christian faith and public integrity

Highly desirable

  1. Practical experience of Christian faith-based approaches to public integrity

  2. Able to present the paper at a global consultation in 2018 (date and location to be confirmed) if travel

Framework for invited papers (3,000 words approx.)

  1. Taking a global perspective, and noting regional variations where possible, describe and discuss the main terms or categories that are most widely used by Christians from your tradition when discussing issues of public integrity / good governance / controlling corruption.

  2. Taking a global perspective, and noting regional variations where possible, describe and discuss the main doctrines and church practices that help or hinder Christians from your tradition with regard to promoting public integrity / good governance / controlling corruption.

  3. Describe and discuss any practical faith-based models that Christians from your tradition have adopted in order to promote public integrity / good governance / control corruption.

  4. Describe the main trends over the past 25 years in the ways that Christians from your tradition relate to matters of public integrity / good governance / controlling corruption.

  5. For all the above, please write initially from the perspective of what you consider to be the mainstream of your theological tradition, including references where appropriate to any official church documents. Then add comments separately about any significant minority movements that differ from the mainstream.

To express interest in being an author, or to request further information, please contact Dr Martin Allaby (mallaby@ocms.ac.uk) before 30 March 2017.
