Abstract:
Le livre, rassemble onze auteurs qui s’associent pour mettre à la fois la mémoire culturelle nigérienne en valeur et aussi en tension avec les ressources et procédures éducatives actuellement en cours. L’ouvrage transpose de manière didactique les savoirs endogènes tirés de la tradition nigérienne, en les mettant en relation avec les savoirs et les procédures déjà en usage à l’école dite moderne. L’ouvrage est destiné aux enseignants exerçant dans les classes du primaire et du secondaire, aux enseignants en formation, aux formateurs d’enseignants, et à tous ceux qui s’intéressent de près aux questions éducatives en Afrique. Ce manuel est le résultat d’un travail collectif mené par des chercheurs de plusieurs horizons, et soutenu par Fondazione Vittorino Chizzolini (Italy), L’École normale supérieure (ENS, Niger) et l’Université de Genève (UNIGE, Suisse).

Abstract:
The cross in this collection is not a symbol of suffering and death, but one of joy, energy, life and community. The 60 crosses from across the globe - the private collection of the author - offer the possibility to discover the depth and diversity of the cross, in a spirit of ecumenical curiosity. They are organised around five themes: Tree of life; Community; Suffering; Devotion and Protection. The selection is limited to personal crosses found in households, worn as necklaces or bought in church shops. This booklet is an invitation to deepen personal spirituality, to choose from among the crosses and to meditate on them as a means to express personal hope and to find life energy as a source of ethical reflection and action.

Abstract:
This book reflects on the process of constructing a curriculum for Vietnam studies designed for educators and researchers in the field of social studies. Based on a selection of scholarly works, proceeds of seminars and conferences on education inside and outside Vietnam, the English edition proposes an analysis on factors that affect the learning environment of Vietnam as a young nation in the context of globalisation. The texts presented cover a large spectrum of subjects, starting with the changes in the educational and cultural background of Cochinchina under the French colonial period, visiting the role of higher education in an economy in transition, including the major literary trends in the pre-1975 Southern Vietnam modernisation process, among others. Transcripts of seminars and conferences reflect participants’ visions on the future of Vietnamese education, with the editor’s comments as takeaways at the end of each section.

Abstract:
Chacun s’interroge sur l’instabilité et les violences postélectorales. Censées faciliter l’alternance au pouvoir, les élections sont devenues une véritable source d’instabilité des institutions. Ce livre se consacre à l’analyse des élections en Afrique et des causes à l’origine de nouveaux phénomènes, qui entraînent des morts inutiles et détruisent les économies nationales encore faibles et fragiles. L’auteur examine l’origine d’un remarquable mimétisme chez les dirigeants et en montre les limites en politique publique, afin de présenter douze propositions originales pour sortir l’Afrique des crises postélectorales successives.

Abstract:

Face aux crises que traverse la République démocratique du Congo depuis soixante ans, un retour aux sources des quatre évangiles est proposé par l’auteur. Une exégèse de l’appel aux disciples par Jésus est mise en dialogue avec les besoins du peuple congolais. Comment réussir à produire une alliance comparable à celle offerte aux disciples, et qui fonctionne dans la réalité actuelle? Des ressorts puissants sont assurés par des relations interpersonnelles responsables. Suivre l’appel aux disciples c’est transcender la seule foi par une volonté d’agir. Cette volonté d’agir permet la conduite conséquente et collective d’actions selon un bien commun responsable, dont les racines axiologiques sont puisées dans cette foi.

Abstract:
It is commonly believed that considering nature different from us, human beings (qua rational, cultural, religious and social actors), is detrimental to our engagement for the preservation of nature. An obvious example is animal rights, a deep concern for all living beings, including non-human living creatures, which is understandable only if we approach nature, without fearing it, as something which should remain outside of our true home. “Walking with the earth” aims at questioning any similar preconceptions in the wide sense, including allegoric-poetic contributions. We invited 14 authors from 4 continents to express all sorts of ways of saying why caring is so important, why togetherness, being-with each others, as a spiritual but also embodied ethics is important in a divided world.

Abstract:

Second edition with Preface by Nicolas Walder. This study investigates the correlation between violations of cultural rights and the violence committed by state actors against a community rooted in a profoundly Buddhist society. It is based on the first-hand testimonies of Tibetan exiles who have sought asylum in Switzerland. It uncovers the experiences, perceptions and opinions of Tibetans, most of whom have suffered various forms of abuse in Tibet.

The approach adopted in this book draws on the 2007 Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and 2007 Declaration de Fribourg, which reflect the essential role of cultural rights. It also focuses on the concept of genocide developed by Raphael Lemkin (1900–1959). The PRC has violently disrupted the natural process of cultural change in Tibet, through forced cultural assimilation which continues to engender violence.

Tibetans’ resilience, nonviolence and commitment to peace are powerful coping mechanisms. Yet, extreme self-violence continues: since 1998, 157 self-immolations have been reported. Efforts must continue to advocate for human rights in Tibet, particularly when it comes to issues of freedoms of expression, religion, assembly and of movement, in order to secure a sustainable peace that would benefit both Tibet and the PRC.

Abstract:
Artificial intelligence (AI) is exerting unprecedented pressure on the global higher educational landscape in transforming recruitment processes, subverting traditional pedagogy, and creating new research and institutional opportunities. These technologies require contextual and global ethical analysis so that they may be developed and deployed in higher education in just and responsible ways. To-date, these efforts have been largely focused on small parts of the educational environments leaving most of the world out of an essential contribution. This volume acts as a corrective to this and contributes to the building of competencies in ethics education and to broader, global debates about how AI will transform various facets of our lives, not the least of which is higher education.
