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:
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:
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.

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:
Ethnic-based conflicts have continued to dot the global landscape. African countries and Nigeria, in particular, have been embroiled in these tidal waves of violent conflicts with cataclysmic consequences. Media Ethics and the Case of Ethnicity: A Contextual Analysis in Plateau State, Nigeria is a critical investigation into the participation of the newspaper journalists in reporting this intractable violent episode in Plateau State, Nigeria. Through deliberate use of lexical, phrases, stereotypes, frames, propaganda and litotes, journalists intensified the conflict. In this easy-to-read book, the author provides guidelines for conflict journalists which includes human rights consciousness journalism as pre-emptive approach to preventing conflicts before they turn violent.

With a multidisciplinary approach and twenty years of expertise and research on this topic, Prof. Bergadaà proposes a concrete methodology for addressing this issue, both for the plagiarised and plagiariser, as well as for the institutions and associations. Researchers, students, directors of journals and institutions, as well as other actors in the scientific arena such as policy makers and lawyers are all concerned with preserving the value of integrity at the core of research ethics.

Abstract:
The World Council of Churches and the All Africa Conference of Churches invited young people to contribute to the discussion on the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, with its three dimensions of celebrating life together–visiting wounds and engaging in transformative action–in the African context. Participants reflected on four closely interrelated themes: Truth and Trauma (peacebuilding), Land and Displacement (economic, ecological justice and migration), Gender Justice, and Racial Justice. This collection of selected essays shares the dreams and aspirations of these young people towards Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want goals. Aspiration 6 of the African Union is for an Africa whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children. The essay competition provided a platform for youth to engage in research and write their aspirations of the Africa They Want, an Africa they pray for, as the future guardians of the continent.
