Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
Women are subjected to all kinds of violence, such as rape, forced marriage, forced identity, dependence, and a lack of freedom of expression, giving rise to the status of women as second-class citizens. Despite this gloomy picture, women across cultures agree that this denigration can only be stopped and reversed if those who are victims are educated so that they can discuss the problems, proper solutions, and see to their implementation. Many female authors write about the trauma that women undergo and the various ways in which women are marginalized in a male-dominated society. This thesis is based on novels by two female authors, Second Class Citizen (1974) by Buchi Emecheta from Ibuzo, Nigeria, and Das verborgene Wort (2001) by Ulla Hahn from Kirchhundem, Sauerland, Germany. It critically discusses the subjugation of women and violence against them through the prism of the novels' main characters.

Abstract:
This book offers a commentary on the Arusha Call to Discipleship, unpacking the meaning of its 12-part summons.

It intends to be a key resource for discovering what it means to become what Pope Francis described as "missionary disciples". Primarily meant for individuals and study groups in churches, mission agencies and theological institutions, it is a useful tool for anyone interested in the ecumenical mission movement and World Christianity.

Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
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. The author looks at development from a divine perspective, and expects all developers, to integrate the biblical teaching so that it can make meaning theologically and ecologically to sustain holistic development.
