The 18 chapters of this book are a result of a Globethics.net conference in March 2018 at the Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) in Kenya, focused on the integration of Ethics in Higher Education. The book captures the potential for sharing of knowledge, and triggering interdisciplinary collaboration and research across a wide variety of issues ranging from research practice, religion, entrepreneurship, leadership, fundraising and corruption. While some of the chapters focus on the understanding of ethics and its relationship with the various other aspects of life, others concentrate on the methods and strategies of effectively teaching ethics.
Ethics is a universal concern for all people around the world, and this book explores how and why ethics is still relevant today. Who Cares About Ethics? is made up of selected essays from participants in the Globethics.net Network, capitalising on their diverse knowledge and life experiences. Topics range from ethics in the cyberworld, the role of religious ethics in advocating for the environment, explorations of ethics in health and well-being to redefining the concept of homesickness.
La justice climatique restaurative: Réparer les inégalités Nord/Sud
La reconnaissance des inégalités climatiques commande de penser une justice climatique Nord/Sud appropriée, et de rechercher une réponse adéquate aux besoins réels du Sud global. Ni la justice climatique distributive et ni la justice climatique corrective ne permettent de répondre convenablement à la nature multidimensionnelle de ces besoins. Face à ces limites la justice climatique restaurative a trois atouts principaux : 1) elle permet de mieux intégrer la responsabilité historique du Nord dans le traitement des injustices climatiques. 2) Elle permet de se recentrer sur les besoins de justice des victimes climatiques du Sud : besoins de réparation, besoins de distribution, besoins de reconnaissance, besoins de participation et besoins d'assistance. Et enfin 3), elle permet d'inclure une dimension préventive au processus de justice.

Diritti dell'uomo e cooperazione internazionale: una scommessa educativa
La domanda principale che la cooperazione deve porsi è sapere ciò che, in ogni azione, può aumentare o diminuire il potere delle persone e delle comunità e a quale gruppo sociale la cooperazione apporta più giustizia, più diritti, più libertà. È necessario per questo partire da un approccio basato sui diritti dell'uomo il cui obiettivo è quello di aumentare le capacità delle persone che rendono effettivo l'esercizio delle libertà e responsabilità. Il rispetto dei diritti definisce un insieme di regole di comportamento che i governi devono osservare per permettere alle persone di vivere in dignità e in libertà.

This piece of work focuses on the role of the church in sustainable development. The church is a major player because of the big numbers that constitute her institution. She has an everyday opportunity, and over binding responsibility to fulfill her ministry mandate. The church is one of the front line players in development, and her place is vital because she is supposed to engage a holistic role in development, more than any other player does.
