Aimé Jules Murhula Manegabe
ISBN 978-2-88931-149-1-Globethics.net Focus No. 45

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.

Cristina Calvo / Humberto Shikiya / Deivit Montealegre (Eds.)
ISBN 978-2-88931-199-6-Globethics.net Focus No. 43

Aportes camino al G-20 2018 en el marco de la agenda 2030. "Dialogo de alto nivel sobre arquitectura financiera internacional: ética y economía". Ecoeconomía y economía del bien común global, desigualdades estructurales y protección del trabajo, financiamiento del crimen y corrupción pública y privada, responsabilidad social empresaria y financiamiento para el desarrollo de países y personas. Cada uno de estos puntos tiene una fuerte incidencia en la vida de las naciones y de las personas. La ética suele ser la gran ausente en muchas de las actividades que se desarrollan en el mundo y también en nuestras propias políticas públicas. Cualquier análisis que se haga sobre el sistema financiero internacional y su preponderancia sobre los sectores productivos, sobre la implementación de modelos económicos alejados de los reales intereses de sus destinatarios, como también las políticas que no alcanzan a cubrir necesidades y pobreza por falta de recursos, pone en evidencia la ausencia de elementos de justicia, de ética, que permitan lograr los recursos necesarios para encontrar las soluciones equitativas indispensables. Este debate multidisciplinario quiere ser un aporte a este proceso.

Baru! Reichtum der Welt - für Alle (2017)
Florian Josef Hoffmann
ISBN 978-2-88931-188-0-Globethics.net Focus No. 42

Der Titel des Buches verspricht "Reichtum für Alle". Natürlich kann das nicht Superluxus für alle sein. Nein, das wäre unendliche Verschwendung, die in niemandes Interesse sein kann. Gemeint ist etwas Realistisches, nämlich eine halbwegs gerechte Teilhabe aller Menschen am unendlichen und unbeschreiblichen Reichtum dieser unserer gottgegebenen Welt. Alle, wirklich alle, können als Menschen in die Lage versetzt werden, ein selbstbestimmtes, menschenwürdiges Leben zu führen, können "durch Wohlstand zur Freiheit" gelangen. Die Grundvorstellung ist simpel: je mehr Menschen es gibt, umso mehr sind in der Lage, sich sinnvoll in ein sinnvolles Ganzes einzubringen. Sonnenenergie, Technologie und motivierte menschliche Arbeitskraft stehen in gigantischem Ausmaß zur Verfügung.

Baru! Search for Non-Violent and People-Centric Development (2017)
John M. Itty
ISBN 978-2-88931-185-9-Globethics.net Focus No. 41

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.

Kahwa Njojo
ISBN 978-2-88931-162-0-Globethics.net Focus No. 40

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.

Baru! Interfaith Dialogues in Indonesia and Beyond (2017)
Leonard Chrysostomos Epafras (ed.)
ISBN 978-2-88931-183-5-Globethics.net Focus No. 39

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.

Baru! Ética y solidaridad: Perspectivas históricas y normativas (2017)
Edison Paul Tabra Ochoa
ISBN 978-2-88931-175-0-Globethics.net Focus No. 38

Este trabajo asume el reto de aprehender una idea tan poliédrica como la de la solidaridad. Para ello, además de llevar a cabo un estudio completo de las distintas visiones que se han ofrecido del término, se opta por la acertada estrategia de desglosar su contenido. La propuesta consigue integrar en un solo concepto el enfoque objetivo (como deber o principio), de contenido contractual, con la visión subjetiva (como virtud y actitud), factor de desarrollo humano. Este es, según el autor, el único camino para garantizar el fin esencial de la solidaridad: el bien común y la reducción de las desigualdades de la sociedad por la falta de medios de cumplimiento o por la tendencia al conformismo.

Regional Organisations and Sustainable Governance of Mineral Resources in Tanzania (2016)
Conrad John Masabo
ISBN 978-2-88931-152-1-Globethics.net Focus No. 37

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.

Local Cultural Values and Projects of Economic Development (2016)
Symphorien Ntibagirirwa
ISBN 978-2-88931-110-1 - Globethics.net Focus No. 35

The author focuses the reflection on the link between local cultural values and projects of economic development in light of Sen's capability approach. He argues what people believe and value facilitate the passage from the universal conception of economic development to feasibility of development at the local level. Through 12 case studies, the book illustrates how the theoretical framework of Sen's capability approach, namely the definition of freedom to self-determination and the definition of development as the expansion of people's freedoms, applies in practice.

Identités territoriales et conflits dans la province du Sud-Kivu, R.D. Congo (2016)
Bosco Muchukiwa
ISBN 978-2-88931-112-5- Globethics.net Focus No. 34

Les territoires de Fizi, de Kalehe et d'Uvira sont des foyers de conflits au Sud-Kivu (R.D. Congo); ils ont racines dans le processus d'organisation de l'espace politique à l'époque coloniale. La reconfiguration de l'espace a produit des nouvelles entités territoriales et administratives (les chefferies agrandies, les secteurs et les territoires) qui sont des réalités sociologiques et politiques. La méconnaissance des différences entre le territoire ethnique et étatique et entre peuples autochtones et allochtones est un adjuvant de conflits. Quelques pistes susceptibles d'orienter des actions pour la paix sociale sont exposées; elles passent par l'exigence éthique préalable d'une reconnaissance réciproque des organisations territoriales, de l'histoire des peuples et d'une prise en considération des normes de droit.

Speaking Truth to Power: A Critique of the Church of South India Episcopacy (Governance) of the 21st Century (2015)
Joseph G. Muthuraj
ISBN 978-2-88931-094-4- Globethics.net Focus No. 31

The demand for a better power control and accountability in the Indian Christian Churches underlines the issue of transforming traditional leadership models. The Church of South India (CSI) is a unique church since it is the pioneer of a united and uniting church since 1947, uniting the Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregationalist denominations of the missionary churches. With over 4 million members, it is a powerful church even though Christians in India represent a small minority. The process of a constitutional reform is currently debated to change the character of this church from a united to an episcopal church with an accumulation of power in the role of the moderator. The controversy about this reform is linked to ongoing criticisms about corruption in many of the CSI-related institutions. On this background, church governance becomes a hot issue of power control and accountability, and above all, of the faithfulness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the credibility of the community of believers.

Integrating Faith with Work: A Ministry Transformational Model (2015)
Elly K. Kansiime
ISBN 978-2-88931-087-6- Globethics.net Focus No. 28

The author shows that bad mannered young people are not only punished by caning, but are given manual work as punishment. The consequence of this practice is that some people grow up believing that work is the punishment for wrong doers, which results in their hating it. The idea that work results in benefits to the one doing it seems trivial but, as a result of a wrong attitude, the value that comes from regarding work as part of human joy can easily been turned into resentment. Integrating faith with work among the Christians of the Anglican Church of the Province of Uganda comes as a response to possible transvaluation of values during the 21st century, when work becomes so important in terms of domestic consumption and national growth. This publication points out the positive values of work and how they can be recovered through biblical teaching.

Peacebuilding Initiatives of the Presbyterian Church in Post-Genocide Rwandan Society: An Impact Assessment (2015)
Célestin Nsengimana
ISBN 978-2-88931-043-2-Globethics.net Focus No. 24

The dilemma between the sermon of love and peace proclaimed in Rwanda by Churches and their failure to contribute to the prevention of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda brought the researcher to wonder whether the speech and actions of EPR as one of Protestant Churches in Rwanda, could have any impact on the human behaviour. Through that dilemma between the negative impact of the Church mission in the pregenocide Rwanda and its will to pursue the mission in the post-genocide era by contributing to the process of post-conflict peacebuilding, the research problem can be formulated as follows: Is there any effect of peacebuilding initiatives of the Presbyterian Church in the post-Genocide Rwandan society?

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 has given rise to many institutional mechanisms for dealing with diversity that are strikingly different from Western institutions. This rich Indonesian experience is an important global resource in learning to deal with diversity.

End-of-Life Decisions, Ethics and the Law. A Case for Statutory Legal Clarity and Reform in South Africa (2012)
Willem A Landman
ISBN 978-2-940428-52-6  - Globethics.net Foucs No. 9

This position paper puts forward an ethical case for end-of-life decision-mak¬ing legislation. Such legislation would clarify areas of legal uncertainty, most notably in respect of terminal pain management, withholding and withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment (sometimes called "passive euthanasia"), and advance directives (a living will and a durable power of attorney for healthcare). More controversially, the paper also argues for the inclusion of assisted dying (assisted suicide and voluntary active euthanasia) in a comprehensive end-of-life decision-making bill.

L'éthique : un défi pour la politiquePourquoi l'éthique importe plus que jamais en politique et comment elle peut faire la différence (2014) 
 Benoît Girardin
 ISBN 978-2-940428-90-8 - Globethics.net Focus No. 5

" Par déception ou cynisme, nombreux s'accordent à penser que éthique et politique ne font pas bon ménage ou sont même antagonistes. Serait-ce un combat d'arrière-garde que de revitaliser l'interaction et la tension entre éthique et politique ? L'ouvrage s'attache à montrer sur des cas de politique intérieure autant qu'internationale que le politique minimise ses risques ou optimise ses chances en se laissant questionner par l'éthique. C'est ici à l'épreuve de l'expérience que se démontre la pertinence de l'éthique en politique et les risques qu'elle permet de gérer. "

Holiness as Wholeness: Ethical Implications towards an Inclusive Understanding of the HIV / AIDS Crisis in Kenya

James Eroni Miriago: Holiness as Wholeness: Ethical Implications towards an Inclusive Understanding of the HIV / AIDS Crisis in Kenya

Author: James Eroni Miriago

ISBN: 978-2-88931-298-6
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 53
Publication: 2019

This study presents a critical examination of holiness as wholeness – ethical implications towards an inclusive understanding of the HIV/AIDS crisis in Kenya. The understanding of holiness and its interpretation has contributed to the stigmatisation of those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS. The study calls for a theologically based re-interpretation of holiness, firstly, by evaluating and interpreting a Pentecostals understanding of HIV and AIDS and its effects on stigma and discrimination; secondly, it aims to assess how the doctrine of holiness as wholeness is challenged by the impact of HIV and AIDS in the Redeemed Gospel Church (RGC), a concrete Pentecostal church in East Africa; and thirdly, it aims to propose a new approach to the doctrine of holiness as wholeness, which could be applied in the Pentecostal African context globally.

Author: Johannes Hoffmann

ISBN: 978-2-88931-296-2
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 52
Publication: 2019

Als Ethiker, der sich seit über 40 Jahren mit Fragen ethischer Geldanlagen befasst und seit über 30 Jahren als Diakon in seiner Gemeinde tätig ist, träumt Johannes Hoffmann von einer solidarischen Kirche. Ausgangspunkt sind die Finanzskandale der Kirche in Rom und in Deutschland. Diese greift er in einer diffenrenzierten Analyse auf und macht methodische und inhaltliche Vorschläge für eine dem Gemeinwohl dienende solidarische Kirche, die der Maxime des Evangeliums folgt: „Die Armen sind die ersten Adressaten des Evangeliums." Daraus resultiert für ihn angesichts schwindender Priesterzahlen und zahlreicher Kirchenaustritte von Gläubigen eine Entwicklung in Gemeinden und diözesanen Strukturen, in denen Frauen und Mäner auf Augenhöhe mit Priestern und Bischöfen über ihre gemeinsame Verantwortung für die Weitergabe der Botschaft Jesu miteinander kommunizieren und arbeiten.

Corporate Governance for Churches. Toward a Legal Reform in the Church of South India Trust Association

Joseph G. Muthuraj: Corporate Governance for Churches. Toward a Legal Reform in the Church of South India Trust Association cover

Author: Joseph G. Muthuraj

ISBN: 978-2-88931-278-8
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 49
Publication: 2019

The book explores the nature and function of the non-profit incorporated company the Church of South India Trust Association (CSITA) situated in Chennai, South India, and analyses the precarious situation the organisation finds itself in with regard to the financial and property (mis)management. This leads the author to make a major remedial proposal, namely, to lift its corporate veil to expose the true affairs of the company for reproof and restoration. Corporate Governance is defined as referring to the rules, regulations, policies and standards required for sustaining accountability, transparency and general corporate integrity. The aim of the book is to elevate the Church to a strong position with regard to corporate governance, liberating it from corporate failures and from inadequate and improper internal governance mechanism..

Bioética de las enfermedades tropicales desatendidas

Bioética de las enfermedades tropicales desatendidas

Author: Fernando J. Andrade Narváez

ISBN: 978-2-88931-276-4
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 48
Publication: 2019

Las enfermedades tropicales que afectan a poblaciones que viven en condiciones de pobreza han sido desatendidas siempre. En este libro se revisan algunos de los múltiples factores involucrados y se enfatiza que incluso la bioética y los bioeticistas mismos han igualmente desatendido este grave problema. El problema de fondo es que los organismos internacionales, las autoridades responsables de la atención e investigación de la salud, y los organismos financiadores de investigación para la salud no han considerado a estas enfermedades como una prioridad. Además, los abordes que se han aplicado no visualizan el problema de manera integral. En el mundo actual en plena crisis humanitaria, moral y ética, este documento pretende ser una voz que llama a una toma de consciencia social responsable que se interese en "los otros", los sin voz, los marginados, los olvidados y desatendidos. Es una invitación a despertar, reflexionar, y plantear nuevas propuestas para atender a esta población.

Le langage symbolique. Une méthode en théologie

Author: Jonathan Kashindi Mulolwa

ISBN: 978-2-88931-254-2
Series number: Globethics.net Focus Series No. 47
Publication: 2018

Les écrivains bibliques ont coutume de recourir au symbolisme pour assurer que la saisie de leur message soit facilitée. En se focalisant en particulier sur le quatrième évangile du Nouveau Testament, l'auteur lève le voile sur le caractère énigmatique de la christologie johannique qui paraît déconcertante pour le lecteur non averti à cause du caractère imagé que revêtent les appellations de Jésus : comme langage parabolique et allégorique, comme métaphore et symbole.

Cette étude montre que le symbolisme n'est pas une formulation conceptuelle obscure et incomprise du public, mais au contraire que les théologiens devraient dans leurs discours de chaque jour être en mesure de trouver des formulations symboliques, afin de traduire l'exactitude de la vérité éthique et religieuse à transmettre. Bien compris ce langage est un outil d'enseignement fidèle à la méthode de transmission biblique et un véhicule sémantique d'une efficacité pédagogique inégalée..

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.

Ética y economía: la relación dañada

Editors: Cristina Calvo / Humberto Shikiya / Deivit Montealegre

ISBN: 978-2-88931-199-6
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 43
Publication: 2017

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.

Economic Justice and Welfare for All. Seeking Prosperity and Freedom

CSR Report on Chinese Business Overseas Operations

ISBN: 978-2-88931-224-5
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 42
Publication: 2018

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.

Search for Non-Violent and People-Centric Development

Author: John M. Itty

ISBN: 978-2-88931-185-9
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 41
Publication: 2017

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.

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.

Editor: Leonard Chrysostomos Epafras

ISBN: 978-2-88931-183-5
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 39
Publication: 2017

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.

Publication: 2017

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.

Regional Organisations and Sustainable Governance of Mineral Resources in Tanzania

Author: Conrad John Masabo

ISBN: 978-2-88931-152-1
Series number:Globethics.net Focus No. 37
Publication: 2016

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.

Author: Symphorien Ntibagirirwa

ISBN: 978-2-88931-110-1
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 35
Publication: 2016

The author focuses the reflection on the link between local cultural values and projects of economic development in light of Sen's capability approach. He argues what people believe and value facilitate the passage from the universal conception of economic development to feasibility of development at the local level. Through 12 case studies, the book illustrates how the theoretical framework of Sen's capability approach, namely the definition of freedom to self-determination and the definition of development as the expansion of people's freedoms, applies in practice.

Identités territoriales et conflits dans la province du Sud-Kivu, R.D. Congo

Author: Bosco Muchukiwa

ISBN: 978-2-88931-112-5
Series number: Globethics.net Focus No. 34
Publication: 2016

Les territoires de Fizi, de Kalehe et d'Uvira sont des foyers de conflits au Sud-Kivu (R.D. Congo); ils ont racines dans le processus d'organisation de l'espace politique à l'époque coloniale. La reconfiguration de l'espace a produit des nouvelles entités territoriales et administratives (les chefferies agrandies, les secteurs et les territoires) qui sont des réalités sociologiques et politiques. La méconnaissance des différences entre le territoire ethnique et étatique et entre peuples autochtones et allochtones est un adjuvant de conflits. Quelques pistes susceptibles d'orienter des actions pour la paix sociale sont exposées; elles passent par l'exigence éthique préalable d'une reconnaissance réciproque des organisations territoriales, de l'histoire des peuples et d'une prise en considération des normes de droit.
