Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
This work assumes the challenge of apprehending an idea as multifaceted as that of solidarity. To do this, in addition to carrying out a complete study of the different views that have been offered of the term, we choose the right strategy to break down its content. The proposal manages to integrate in a single concept the objective approach (as a duty or principle), contractual content, with the subjective vision (as virtue and attitude), human development factor. This is, according to the author, the only way to guarantee the essential goal of solidarity: the common good and the reduction of inequalities in society due to the lack of means of compliance or the tendency to conform.

Abstract:
Religious Studies in Indonesia as a full-fledged discipline has a long precedence, at least since 1970s, but found its momentum after the reformation of 1998. The establishment of CRCS (Centre for Religion and Cross-cultural Studies) in 2000, and the Indonesian Consortium for Religious Studies (ICRS) in 2006 marked a significant shift of the discipline. The two institutions provided Master and Doctoral program and researches on Religious Studies. In commemoration to the tenth anniversary of ICRS in 2016, eight alumni contributed part of their research project in the present volume, in order to provide a glimpse of the shift and issues addressed in the discipline at the present day Indonesia. One contribution from the Philippines emphasised further the dynamic of the studies in the region.

Abstract:
La recrudescence et l'omniprésence de cas de violence dans le monde invite à une réflexion théologique au sujet du problème de la construction de la paix dans un monde violent. Une réponse biblique s'avère indispensable. Le pacifisme caractérisé par la non-violence est un moyen efficace pour aboutir à la paix. Il est cohérent avec le message de l'Évangile et pertinent en ce qui a trait à la contribution que l'Église peut apporter dans son rôle de communauté appelée à construire la paix dans le monde. Ce livre développe la notion du pacifisme à partir de la lecture du passage de Romains 12,12-21.

Abstract:
Market-centric development is not only unjust, inequitable, unsustainable, but also violent. The end of development-aggressive consumption, and the means—aggressive production, trade and accumulation—make development anti-people. The more marketable wealth is produced, the more ill-fare is brought instead of welfare. Financialisation of the economy and neglect of the ecology bring financial and ecological crises. Neglect of non-marketable wealth, like love, caring, sharing, concern for others and social/cultural capital, are the reasons for this malady. Only people-centric development that fosters production of non-marketable wealth along with marketable wealth can promote welfare. In this book, the author, highlights the importance for reducing production of wealth with negative utility, the need to foster spirituality of development, and suggests a few non-market programmes to promote people-centric development.

Abstract:
Contributions on the way to the G-20 2018 within the framework of the 2030 agenda. "High-level dialogue on international financial architecture: ethics and economics". Ecoeconomics and the economy of the global common good, structural inequalities and protection of work, financing of crime and public and private corruption, corporate social responsibility and financing for the development of countries and people. Each of these points has a strong impact on the lives of nations and people. Ethics is often absent in many of the activities that take place in the world and also in our own public policies. Any analysis of the international financial system and its preponderance over the productive sectors, on the implementation of economic models away from the real interests of their recipients, as well as policies that do not meet needs and poverty due to lack of resources, highlights the absence of elements of justice, ethics, to achieve resources necessary to find the indispensable equitable solutions. This multidisciplinary debate wants to be a contribution to this process.

Abstract:
This book focuses on the ethics, governance and performance of the decentralized territorial entities in Bukavu, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). For nearly forty years, the different political regimes have tried to improve the living conditions of their populations through the implementation of decentralization, which allows the leaders of their leaders to be approached in the hope of triggering a large-scale local development process. The author argues that this theme is highly strategic for a "post-conflict" country, which aspires to consolidate political ethics, democracy and good governance.
