Download and read online Less Pretension More Ambition in PDF and EPUB Ontwikkelingshulp heeft onder de Nederlandse bevolking nog altijd een groot draagvlak, zo blijkt uit opinieonderzoek. Maar de twijfels nemen toe. Ook in de media worden steeds meer vraagtekens geplaatst bij de effecten van hulp. Met name de situatie in Afrika stelt velen teleur. Waarom geven we eigenlijk ontwikkelingshulp, en helpt die hulp? Wat weten we over ontwikkelingstrajecten van landen en over de mogelijkheid daar van buiten aan bij te dragen? Hoe relevant is hulp nog voor ontwikkelingslanden nu andere financiële stromen zoals remittances en buitenlandse investeringen (FDI) door globalisering zijn toegenomen? En heeft beleid gericht op thema's als klimaat, migratie, financiële stabiliteit, kennis, handel en veiligheid niet meer invloed op de ontwikkelingskansen van arme landen? Deze en andere vragen komen aan bod in dit rapport van de Wetenschappelijke Raad voor het Regeringsbeleid. Op basis van bijna vijfhonderd gesprekken in het veld en een uitgebreide bestudering van de literatuur formuleert de WRR aanbevelingen voor forse wijzigingen in de organisatie van ontwikkelinghulp, en voor gestructureerde aandacht voor terreinen die ontwikkelingsrelevant zijn en voor mondiale publieke goederen.

Download and read online Healing God s Earth in PDF and EPUB Rural communities and traditional cultures throughout North America and around the world are being systematically dismantled by the forces of urban civilization. It is no new phenomenon. For over four millennia, the powers of urban civilization have been playing God, oppressing people, and exploiting the earth. This long history has brought us to the brink of disaster in the current economic, ecological, and energy crises confronting the dominant global culture. This book reads the Bible through the lenses of rural communities. The Bible has something to say about the origin and character of urban civilization and the dynamic of its relationship to rural communities. Both Israel in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament were engaged in the formation of rural communities of faith living as alternatives to the dominant cultures of the urban civilizations in which they lived. It turns out that local, face-to-face communities, both rural and urban, along with traditional cultures of all stripes, are God's chosen instruments for the subversive, nonviolent disarming of urban civilization and the healing of God's earth.

Download and read online Facing Epistemic Uncertainty in PDF and EPUB Increasing doubts over the narratives that traditionally served to legitimize the tasks and possibilities of societal institutions - such as science - have also called into question the significance of philosophy to educational thinking. Related debates largely concern epistemological issues, i.e. issues regarding the nature and status of (scientific) knowledge. This dissertation takes as its starting point the nowadays hardly controversial idea that all knowledge is to a certain extent 'uncertain'. The questions addressed are how this 'epistemic uncertainty'may be intelligibly understood, and what consequences can be drawn from such an understanding for the tasks and possibilities of philosophy of education as an academic discipline.

Download and read online Divine Perogative and Royal Pretension in PDF and EPUB In this close reading of a text central to the story of David, the author, using the tools of linguistic pragmatics and poetics, exposes the text's promotion of a prophetic-based ideology, through a polemical rhetoric that polarizes David and Yahweh around the opposed notions of king (melek) and leader (nagid). He then goes on to analyse the context, in ancient Near Eastern royal ideology and in Samuel, for how the text develops this opposition, and finally reflects on its promulgation of the supreme mediacy of the prophetic word.
