Rudolf Von Sinner delivering his lecture on current trends and challenges in ecumenisim and theological education in today's world, April 2018
Important contributions have been made in the area of ethics in higher education in the library with the addition of 13 new journals (see the List of journals).
Faithful to the commitment to open and global access, the Globethics.net Library provides these resources for free, and in different languages. The majority of documents are in English (over 2.3 million), followed by German (more than 1 million), Spanish (more than 735,000) and French (more than 714,000).
On the occasion of the meeting of the Consortium of the Global Digital Library on Theology and Ecumenism, GlobeTheoLib for short, Globethics.net invited Dr Rudolf von Sinner, Professor of Systematic Theology, Ecumenism and Inter-religious Dialogue to give a public lecture on 13 April 2018. Prof. von Sinner provided a panoramic analysis of theological education in the context of the growing diversity of Christianity.
In my review of the work done by various scholars, I noted that unethical leadership in Africa frequently leads to persistent human rights violations, bad governance, dysfunctional institutions, patronage, electoral fraudulence, manipulation of ethnic differences, corruption and personalisation of power which hinders the prevalence of peace and social justice. However, the work of Globethics.net in collaboration with the WCC (World Council of Churches) aims to provide an array of resources in the form of e-journals, e-books, periodical articles, reports, theses and many other collections in different fields to address different issues.During my time (at Globethics.net) I had a great deal of research experience not only studying and learning how to use library information. Most of my experience was practical... What impressed me most was the diligence and effective work performance by the staff... we worked as a team which facilitated the sharing of ideas and achieving progress.
