Abstract:
This short discussion paper on Ethics in Higher Education as a Key Driver for Recovery in a World Living with COVID-19 is the result of a year-long consultation with contributions from experts and practitioners in the field. The higher education sector as a whole has been and continues to be challenged to adapt and to ensure that institutions and students are not only able to survive but to continue and to thrive. Ethics in higher education is at the heart of that dynamic process, serving to identify and address inequalities with ethics as the foundation of the effort to find solutions and to continue to envision a world in which responsible leadership with integrity is the norm. The Globethics.net Board of Foundation endorses this discussion paper and invites readers to engage with the critical issues, questions and recommendations made.

Abstract:
Il libro presenta i risultati di una ricerca che parte dalla necessità di costruire un progetto di società inclusiva che rafforzi la capacità di vivere insieme. «L’approccio etnográfico» utilizzato è «un metodo di scoperta che permette a piccoli fatti, raccolti quasi a caso, di diventare significativi. Lo stile fluido adottato in questo lavoro collettivo rispecchia le caratteristiche dell’oggetto studiato.» I diritti culturali hanno fatto da sfondo e hanno costituito la pietra angolare che permette di tessere insieme diritti e libertà nelle loro diverse dimensioni e responsabilità da assumere nel quotidiano. Tre sono stati i momenti che hanno guidato la ricerca : le interviste a persone in diaspora, l’osservazione dei luoghi pubblici in cui le competenze possono essere espresse e le interviste al personale dei servizi sociali per cogliere gli atteggiamenti nei confronti delle persone in diaspora..

Abstract:
The World Council of Churches and the All Africa Conference of Churches invited young people to contribute to the discussion on the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, with its three dimensions of celebrating life together–visiting wounds and engaging in transformative action–in the African context. Participants reflected on four closely interrelated themes: Truth and Trauma (peacebuilding), Land and Displacement (economic, ecological justice and migration), Gender Justice, and Racial Justice. This collection of selected essays shares the dreams and aspirations of these young people towards Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want goals. Aspiration 6 of the African Union is for an Africa whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children. The essay competition provided a platform for youth to engage in research and write their aspirations of the Africa They Want, an Africa they pray for, as the future guardians of the continent.

Abstract:

With the proliferation of the Internet, overcoming plagiarism seems insurmountable for students, teachers and researchers, who tend to find little choice between academia and the law in this regard. With a multidisciplinary approach and twenty years of expertise and research on this topic, Prof. Bergadaà proposes a concrete methodology for addressing this issue, both for the plagiarised and plagiariser, as well as for the institutions and associations. Researchers, students, directors of journals and institutions, as well as other actors in the scientific arena such as policy makers and lawyers are all concerned with preserving the value of integrity at the core of research ethics.

Abstract:
L'auteur étudie en premier lieu l'organisation de l'Église maronite du Liban, et cherche à démontrer l'incidence de celle-ci sur la construction de l'État libanais. Cette visée méthodologique l'induit ensuite à remonter à l'origine de l'Église maronite dès le Ve siècle en Syrie, puis enfin à s'intéresser à son développement dans la Montagne libanaise jusqu'en 1920. La thèse centrale soutenue est que cette période de l'histoire est à même d'éclairer le Liban d'aujourd'hui, comme elle l'a fait de manière exemplaire jusqu'au Pacte National de 1943. C'est dans ce Moyen-Orient, composé d'une forte prédominance du religieux dans les rapports entre groupes que le Liban prend forme, avec ses réalités géopolitiques et ses enjeux stratégiques. Afin de réaliser cette recherche, l'auteur a effectué de nombreux voyages au Liban, parcourant celui-ci en bus, ou à pied par exemple dans la Qadisha - la Vallée Sainte - difficilement accessible au sein de la Montagne chrétienne.
