Abstract

Schulbücher haben innerhalb der Schule eine große Bedeutung für die Gestaltung des Unterrichts. Das Thema Subsahara-Afrika spielt sowohl in der hiesigen Gesellschaft als auch in Schulbüchern eine eher untergeordnete Rolle. Diese Erfahrung machte der aus Eritrea geflüchtete Autor in den 1980/90er Jahren als Lernender an einer Wuppertaler Gesamtschule. Im Rahmen seines Studiums der Sozialpädagogik stellte er fest, dass diese Problematik im universitären Kontext ebenfalls nur marginal behandelt wird. Auch außerhalb der Schule wird Subsahara-Afrika in der allgemeinen Medienberichterstattung als Krisen- und Katastrophenregion dargestellt, bei der insbesondere der Anteil europäischer bzw. westlicher Länder an dieser Situation weitgehend eine untergeordnete Rolle spielt und Initiativen aus Subsahara-Afrika zur Lösung von Problemen kaum Erwähnung finden.

Abstract

Cameroon - formerly a German colony situated at the Gulf of Guinea - is a geostrategically relevant Central African country rich in natural resources. Cameroonian law is a fascination stemming from different sources of law. The influences of British and French law, combined with the customary law of the numerous ethnic groups, are a reflection of the existing legal pluralism - also in the area of environmental protection. The publication adapts itself to today's language policy of Cameroon, which is predetermined by its Constitution, including both English and French chapters. Cameroonian environmental law and national environmental policy are examined in the interplay of international environmental norms and standards. It also addresses the environmental law of the African Union and that of the regional economic communities in Central Africa. In detail, topics such as environmental management, water and land law, conservation of biodiversity, resource protection law, mining and energy law, criminal aspects of environmental law, climate change law, environmental justice and human rights, as well as the legal framework conditions of international trade and sustainable development are presented. In doing so, the publication reflects legal and political options for regulating environmental interests in the African context, which are also relevant for international development cooperation and economic exchange. In addition, the work provides a solid basis for comparative environmental law.

Abstract

This book contributes to the empirical literature on households’ participation in microfinancial services in developing countries. First, it estimates simultaneously the participation in microinsurance schemes and other financial services on household survey data from Ghana. Second, it analyzes the household’s cumulative participation in microfinancial services using household survey data from Sri Lanka. Next, the study focuses on the question whether household’s participation in micro life insurance in Sri Lanka is motivated by the desire to leave bequests. At last, it investigates different sequential steps of the household’s microinsurance participation decision and the joint analysis of micro life and health insurance enrolment in Sri Lanka.

Abstract

The Faculty of Theology at the University of Pretoria is the oldest university faculty in theology in South Africa. It was founded in 1917 as a multi-ecclesial academic institution, with the Netherdutch Reformed Church of Africa (NRCA) as one of the founding church partners for the scientific training of pastors. However, the initiatives for the establishment of a theological faculty in Pretoria, South Africa are rooted in a synodic resolution of the NRCA in 1909, with the institutionalisation of a Curatorium as an ecclesial executive board responsible for the strategic planning of the Faculty of Theology at the then Transvaal University College, which became the University of Pretoria. In 2009 the NRCA celebrates the centennial anniversary of the Curatorium with the publication of a Chronicle, authored by Professor J.P. Oberholzer. It is published as Supplementum 9 of the HTS Theological Studies, South Africa’s oldest theological scholarly journal. The Chronicle consists of 10 chapters: the beginning (1909-1916); the formative stage (1916-1933); multi-ecclesial partnership (1934-1940); internal ecclesial conflict (1941-1953); political tension because of apartheid (1954-1960); ecumenical isolation and internal discord (1961-1970); self-evaluation (1971-1980); growth, retrospection and prospection (1981-1987); rationalisation and optimalisation (1988-1997); multi-ecclesial partnership restored (1998-2009).
