Abstract:
An archipelago of more than 17,000 islands, Indonesia is one of the most diverse countries in the world. It includes hundreds of languages, cultures and religions, including the world's largest Muslim population (more than the whole Middle East put together). This has given rise to many institutional mechanisms for dealing with diversity that are strikingly different from Western institutions. This rich Indonesian experience is an important global resource in learning to deal with diversity.

Abstract:
This survey measures Africans' perceptions of Chinese business in their countries. Such a survey is long overdue. Fifteen African countries with a large presence of Chinese companies were identified to participate in the survey. In total, 1,056 Africans completed an online questionnaire. The results indicate that Africans are happy with Chinese investment in that it contributes to development. They are, however, concerned about its economic, workplace, social and environmental impacts.

Abstract:
"Ce livre est une invitation à humaniser la violence. Bien qu'elle soit le moyen d'expression devenu courant dans la Province du Nord-Kivu en République Démocratique du Congo, la violence n'est pas une fatalité. Répondre à la violence par la violence serait rentrer dans une spirale de violence. Mais opposer à la violence le pardon qui débouche sur la réconciliation, voilà ce que c'est l'humanisation de la violence dans la mesure où le concept de réconciliation appelle à devenir l'autre."

En République Démocratique du Congo, l'État moderne bute à la diversité des mécanismes culturels traditionnels de transformation des conflits : autant de tribus, autant de mécanismes culturels traditionnels. C'est pourquoi réduire le dualisme en ce qui concerne la justice moderne et la justice traditionnelle en matière de transformation des conflits est une voie cruciale, qu'analyse en contexte cette étude sur les mécanismes culturels de transformation des conflits.

Welche Massnahmen zur Weiterentwicklung der Familienpolitiken sind nötig? Die Studie bringt die christlich-protestantische Perspektive in den Dialog ein, mit seiner Betonung der Freiheit, Partnerschaftlichkeit und Verantwortung gegenüber dem Einzelnen und der Gemeinschaft.
