Abstract:
The coexistence and mutual influence of politics and the economy is an everyday reality in modern societies. A Christian perspective on this relationship speaks to the inseparability of ethics and economy, and also to the necessity of dialogue between theology and politics. Engagement in these issues is an important public role and responsibility for churches and Christian theology. The public role of religion in Europe in this current context includes highlighting the core values of Christianity. Of special import in this regard are justice and freedom, how they are exercised in life, and a focus on other values that have undergirded the European project since its beginning. This text turns its attention to a robust theological discussion of these ideas and the challenges facing the flourishing of these values in Europe. It is a unique ecumenical, European contribution to the wider discussion on the complex intersection of theology, ethics, politics, and the economy.

Abstract:
The title of the book promises ‘welfare for all'. Of course, that does not mean luxury for all. No, that would be an endless waste that cannot be in anyone's interest. What is meant is something realistic, namely a reasonably fair participation of all people in the infinite and indescribable wealth of our God-given world. Each person, without exception, can be empowered as a human being to lead a self-determined, decent life, ‘prospering to freedom'. The basic idea is simple: the more people there are on earth, the more capable humanity is to make meaningful contributions to a meaningful whole. Motivated human resources are available on a massive scale.

Abstract:
Nei diritti dell'uomo convergono le aspirazioni e le rivendicazioni fondamentali dell'etica sociale pubblica" affermava Giovanni Paolo II° ed è ciò che questo testo cerca di mettere a fuoco attraverso il rapporto sistemico dei diritti e la statura e la soggettualità dei loro attori che si traduce nel quotidiano in un'etica pubblica intesa come la coscienza sociale della collettività ; una coscienza che nasce dalla tensione fra i diritti e la loro effettività per ridefinire la vita pubblica in funzione della capacità di vivere insieme.

Abstract:
This book aims at six important conceptual tools developed by philosophers. The author develops each particular view in a chapter, hoping to constitute at the end a concise, interesting and easily readable whole. These concepts are: 1. Ethics and realism: elucidation of the distinction between understanding and explanation – the lighthouse type of normativity. 2. Leadership, antirealism and moral psychology – the lightning rod type of normativity. 3. Bright light on self-identity and positive reciprocity – the reciprocity type of normativity. 4. The virtue of generosity and its importance for inclusive education – the divine will type of normativity. 5. Ethical education as normative philosophical perspective. The normativity of self-transformation in education. 6. Aesthetics as expression of human freedom and concern for the whole world in which we live.

Abstract:
Following the development of Globethics.net's new Strategy, Vision and Mission, the Globethics.net International Conference 2018 came as an honest contribution to the urgent search for solutions to a world noticeably and without doubt in disarray, as problems continue to mount. ‘How can we translate and make ethics practically present and relevant in the classroom and lives of students, teachers and professionals who emerge from higher education institutions?' More than 100 teachers, policy makers, research fellows, vice-chancellors, ethics and scientific institutions, consultants, NGOs, IGOs and other stakeholders gathered from all over the world during three days to answer this question. The conference took place on 4–6 June 2018 at the Château de Bossey in the county of Vaud, Switzerland. This book is structured into two parts: the first is composed of discussions and ethical puzzles meant to bring breakthrough insights from the Globethics.net International Conference on ethics in higher education; the second part features selected papers that disclose the conference proceedings.

Abstract:
La souveraineté est un principe universel fondée sur l'exercice de tous les droits de l'homme interdépendants ; elle se réalise au travers de multiples coopérations. Chaque droit de l'homme est une capacité et un facteur de développement puisqu'il garantit des accès, dégage des libertés et renforce des responsabilités. Cela signifie que la réalisation de chacun des droits civils, culturels, économiques, politiques ou sociaux constitue un développement des personnes et des tissus sociaux. Cette synthèse se présente comme un guide théorique destiné aux responsables de politiques et de structures publiques, d'organisations de la société civile ou d'entreprises, aux praticiens pour le montage interactif des projets, de leur suivi et de leur évaluation, et enfin aux responsables de formation et aux étudiants.
