Abstract:
Corruption is as old as humanity, though the costly and large-scale efforts to address it have only been developed in recent decades. Despite the numerous standards, regulations and laws that exist, corruption is everywhere and may well be on the rise. Christian faith teaches that, while we cannot be perfect, we can become ‘better sinners'. This book offers advice on how to overcome corruption especially in business.

《爱+经济学》简介
当今世界面临三重危机:人与社会关系的危机、人与人关系的危机、人与其生存环境的危机。这三重危机有愈演愈烈之势,已经危机到当今的社会秩序,而原有的经济学框架对此解释发力更无法提供解决之道。本书认为危机爆发的原因是正外部性缺失,同时本书综合各个学科对爱的研究,认为爱的本质是正外部性,并在此基础上构建"爱+经济学模型",提出了"爱+经济学原理",对当前的社会危机进行深刻解读,同时分别从微观的消费、旅游、企业、教会和宏观的教育、垄断、专利和创新等关乎经济发展和人民福祉的方面进行分析,并给出应对之策。

Abstract:
Domestic Violence is a scourge and reality in many societies around the world, but the topic is not given adequate consideration in terms of the required long-term help and information that victims, offenders and caregivers need. The focus on Domestic Violence brings an area of community and clinical psychology, mental health and overall well-being of citizens into view. The author explores the leadership roles of Churches, pastors and counsellors within religious and church institutions in providing long-term and sustainable healing to the affected and discovers gaps in their approaches. This book is an invitation for all stakeholders involved in family welfare and counselling of vulnerable persons, especially religious leaders and churches, to recognise the positive role of psychological therapy for healing the victims of domestic violence.

Abstract:
Cette recherche originale met en lumière des conditions de possibilité d'une expérience des réconciliations qui s'enracine dans un processus participatif qui a une vocation éthique globale, dans une robuste déconstruction de tout culture de violence en faveur d'une culture de dialogue. Prenant appui sur l'étude de cas de mécanismes efficaces et durables de gestion des conflits liés à la transhumance dans l'Est du RD Congo, on trouvera dans cet ouvrage une synthèse des expériences d'un ensemble d'ONG congolais, présentant à la fois: a) le caractère domptable des conflits liés à la transhumance par des approches endogènes de gestion des conflits, b) la mise en exergue de la vulnérabilité des initiatives locales de paix, tant que l'État ne les intègre pas dans la mise en place des politiques nationales et locales.

Abstract:

We are, however, aware of the gap in values transmission from one generation to the next. This book is a response to that gap. It contains reflections by professionals, teachers, research students and educationists, including policy makers and ethicists, whose thought provoking ideas help the discourse of pushing the agenda that Ethics Matters.

Abstract:
For many policy makers, urban managers, water experts, technicians or activists, ethical perspectives in water management are not important or do not bring any added value. A debate seems to be locked between those stressing mainly the right of access to water for all and those who cannot go beyond economic realism. The sustainable use of a resource that becomes under growing pressure, in terms of extraction, allocation and recycling looks as a technical issue, not to say a technocratic one. This collective book claims the opposite. The many issues faced by the access to water as well as the sustainable use of the resource rely on open negotiations, settling conflicts, tariffs structure while expanding delivery and managing fairly water' scarcity. In all these processes, ethical values do matter.

Abstract:
This is an honest, tough and practical book in which real people recount their real predicaments concerning poverty, sex, bribes, school fees, forced marriage, healers and traditional rites. Ethics is about what is good and bad. An ethical dilemma, however, is not a decision between good and bad but between bad solutions. The question then is which solution is the "least unethical". This book presents 50 real-life cases in the contexts of scholarly, private, professional and public life. The cases in this book have been shared for teachers, students and professional practitioners, to be used in teaching and training or individual study, to test personal intuitions and encourage reflection on ethical decisions.
