Abstract:
La nécesssité de concilier deux réalités juridiques, à savoir le maintien de l'ordre public en réprimant les auteurs d'actes asociaux et le respect des droits essentiels des détenus, a conduit, depuis la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, à l'adoption de multiples instruments visant à règlementer la privation de liberté. Le présent recueil couvre les principaux instruments juridiques internationaux - universels et régionaux africains - relatifs à la détention en Afrique.

Abstract:
The very notion of Chinese civil society could be a subject of controversy: media control, social inequality, judicial independence are hitherto a subject of critical scrutiny. Although conventional media (newspaper, radio and TV) has been under grip by the Chinese communist party, e-participation (micro-blogs, Chinese netizens) has made its way into every corner of China, unlike in other socialist countries such as North Korea and Cuba. Despite the ambivalence of government attitudes at different stages, the positive role of civil organizations has been repeatedly affirmed by various documents and political leaders in China. The paradigm of Chinese NGOs is experiencing an efflorescence. It is too early to foretell in which trajectory they shall evolve. However, one thing is certain: they are growing and reconfiguring, but they do not have to, nor might they ever, meet the standard definition in the liberal western textbook.

Abstract:
Philanthropy in China is fast growing. A new important charity law of China came into effect in 2016. This book is a comprehensive report about these developments: Philanthropy is considered the third form of wealth distribution (private means to public ends and communities) after market competition and taxation scheme. In individualistic and market-oriented societies, philanthropy is more established and relevant than in societies, where the state controls distribution. This book compares Chinese and Western concepts of philanthropy and analyzes the history, drivers, institutional environment, latest legal frame, donation patterns, the role of civil society, corporate giving and the media in Chinese philanthropy. The report serves as comprehensive overview for all actors in society in China and internationally who are dealing with philanthropy in China

Abstract:
Cet ouvrage souligne l'importance de la démocratie électorale rigoureuse, avec un accent sur la perspective panafricaine-subsaharienne et l'interaction entre l'Occident et l'Afrique. L'auteur montre que les élections sont un test pour la démocratie dans un contexte africain, dont les mécanismes géopolitiques, économiques et juridiques sont finement analysés, dans leur dernière actualité. Ainsi apparaissent en toute clarté les contraintes d'une part, les impasses, les jeux politiques et d'autre part l'évidence de la solution dans le mode d'organisation d'élections subsahariennes. Un outil de compréhension pour étudiants, enseignants et chercheurs; Mukonde offre aussi un éclairage utile pour saisir un processus irrésistible qui concerne les politiciens, la communauté internationale, la société civile et les organisations religieuses.
