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:
Pourquoi la notion de « souveraineté démocratique » est-elle si pervertie ? Pourquoi les États s'en considèrent-ils comme les détenteurs, alors que la souveraineté des peuples est constitutive de l'idée même de démocratie ? L'hypothèse d'une « Approche basée sur les droits de l'homme en développement » (ABDH) est que l'analyse de chaque droit de l'homme et de leurs interdépendances, est la voie concrète et contraignante pour tracer des chemins de souveraineté démocratique tout en valorisant la diversité des interprétations. Tous les droits de l'homme sont des facteurs de développement puisqu'ils garantissent des accès, dégagent des libertés et renforcent des responsabilités : ce sont des exercices de souveraineté partagée. Tous les acteurs d'une société en ont la responsabilité. En ce sens, une souveraineté démocratique, oeuvre d'intelligence commune, implique des responsabilités aux échelles multiples. Les principes sont universels, leurs inventions et leurs pratiques sont singulières. Cet ouvrage est un commentaire du petit livre : Souveraineté et coopérations. Guide pour fonder une gouvernance démocratique sur l'interdépendance des droits de l'homme, paru en 2016 chez le même éditeur.

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:
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.

Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
Il libro raccoglie i risultati del progetto Diaspore interculturali e democrazie promosso dalla Cattedra UNESCO Diritti dell'uomo ed etica della cooperazione internazionale dell'Università di Bergamo, l'Observatoire de la diversité et des droits culturels di Friburgo (Svizzera), l'Associazione Vittorino Chizzolini cooperazione internazionale ONLUS (Bergamo), la Cooperativa Sociale Ruah ONLUS (Bergamo), l'Ufficio Migranti Diocesi (Bergamo). Il progetto è partito da una duplice constatazione: da un lato la difficoltà di conciliare l'universalità dei diritti dell'uomo e il rispetto delle diversità culturali e dall'altro il deficit democratico che caratterizza le relazioni internazionali e transnazionali. Le diaspore permettono, al tempo stesso, la dispersione e la riunificazione di persone che, attraverso le proprie organizzazioni e associazioni, costituiscono degli straordinari laboratori per promuovere e sperimentare forme di partecipazione democratica a livello transnazionale. Il lavoro di ricerca ha raccolto racconti di vita e storie di diaspora di persone con vissuti migratori diversi che sono stati analizzati con il metodo Paideia.

Abstract:
Recent reports of a Chinese scientist who claims to have applied genome editing techniques to human embryos, which were subsequently implanted and resulted in the birth of live babies, means that the question of whether—and how—these techniques should be used in humans demands an urgent answer. This in-depth report takes a wider perspective on the issue, which concerns all people as individuals and collectively as a society. It challenges the alleged achievement in China as being profoundly unethical, reflecting a disregard for the ethical and professional concerns of the international scientific community.
