Benedicic, Riemer and Cassotta – Climate Change, Forced Migration and International Law in a Cross-Area and Interdisciplinary Approach: A Global Environmental Legal Solution Focusing on Adaptation?
ABSTRACT
The law of human rights obliges states to refrain from harming their own nationals or persons within their territory. At the same time, the range of human rights becomes more and more entrenched with other global problems and rights, such as the environmental ones including climate change, a global environmental problem par excellence. This article aims to explain that international law is not prepared to protect environmental rights and to include climate change effects which do not know any borders or frontiers, and here it is sufficient to say that the term “climate change refugee” does not exist, legally speaking. On the other hand, climate law is not ready to build a bridge between climate change and human rights either. In this article, we explain how to build bridges b

Doran – Human Population, Noah’s Ark & Climate Change: Christian Thoughts for the Anthropocene Era
ABSTRACT
This paper seeks to begin a Christian conversation about why human population control is necessary for a sustainable global society in the throes of climate change brought on by the consequences of the Anthropocene era. It first examines some of the central philosophical claims of Paul and Anne Ehrlich that the author believes have been too casually dismissed by the scholarly community, due to their mathematical miscalculations about population growth. The author then reviews recent predictions about human population by the United Nations, paying special attention to their threefold typology for addressing the issue: a bigger pie, fewer forks, or better manners.
The paper shifts to an examination of the Vatican’s recent commentary on this issue, especially as the last three pop

Stewart – Biology and The Bible: Some New and Not-So-New Considerations Regarding Population
ABSTRACT
The directions taken by nations are often determined by their faith narratives. Such narratives become embedded in the national psyche and are accompanied by acceptable ways of expression and behaviour. The “Go forth and multiply” passages in the Bible together with the “Have dominion/rule over” reference in the first chapter of Genesis have been widely circulated in the societies of many countries, variously interpreted and discussed. Biology reveals that any species, whether plant, animal or other life form, will increase in numbers exponentially if given favourable living conditions. While Humans may be the only species to appreciate this mathematically, our understanding of the problem has not automatically brought about an effective solution to our own exponential hu

Hugill – Early Modern History of Theology: Richard Hooker, Elizabethan Puritanism and Predesti-nation
ABSTRACT
The first part of the paper seeks to place Richard Hooker in context by examining the public debates with reformers, especially the Puritan Thomas Cartwright. Cartwright’s theology is examined in some measure of detail because his position was the one Hooker responded to directly both in his major work, Of the Lawes of Ecclesiastical Polity, in which he cites from Cartwright’s writing and also in the incomplete manuscript now held in Trinity College, Dublin, that he wrote at the end of his life in response to A Christian Letter and as a defence against Cartwright’s accusations, entitled Dublin Fragments, which addresses the subject of predestination, especially with reference to the Anglican articles of religion that Cartwright had accused him of contradicting. Hooker’s

Chidgzey – Reconciling History and Faith: Approaching Jesus’ Resurrection with Pannenberg, Wright, and the ‘Third Millennials
ABSTRACT
Since Gotthold Lessing’s claim that contingent and accidental historical events cannot determine universal and necessary truths of reason – the “ugly great ditch” between historical and rational truth – it became an almost ubiquitous assertion that Jesus’ resurrection was a ‘matter of faith,’ and thus not a ‘matter of history.’ Historical research into the claim that Jesus was resurrected was seen as impossible or unnecessary, seen through Strauss’ demythologisation and Troeltsch’s homogeneity of history, both of which had enormous influence on 20th-century scholars, especially Kähler, Bultmann, Barth, Brunner, Tillich, Bornkamm, Frei, Schillebeeckx, and Marxsen. Common among these is the claim that historical research cannot be the ground of faith. This a

Kowalska – Litanies of a Name. The Holy Name of Jesus in the Sonnets of Anne de Marquets and Gabrielle de Coignard
ABSTRACT
This paper analyses the sonnets of two sixteenth-century poets, Gabrielle de Coignard and Anne de Marquets. The main theme of their literary works is Christian devotion, for instance, the analyzed sonnets use the motif of the Holy Name of Jesus. In the interpretation, two models are evoked: the pattern of liturgical litanies (for some of them it was not established or was in private use, and it was not allowed for the public devotion) as well as the models of male’s sonnet composition (considering the poetry of Pierre de Ronsard or Joachim du Bellay), popular in this period, both using the analogous stylistic devices such as the anaphora and the repetition.
These models are artistically modified to achieve the aim of celebrating the Holy Name of Jesus, at the same time reducing

Odeh – “Am I a Warrior Yet?” Female Palestinians in Detention
ABSTRACT
The Israeli political suppression of Palestinian society shifts the focus from dealing with gender-based violations internal to Palestinian society to the national struggle. Because the fight for gender-based violations is ignored, Palestinian women become trapped between two patriarchal regimes: the patriarchal regime of domestic affairs within Palestinian society, and the patriarchal regime of the foreign military occupation. Patriarchal manifestations from each regime build off and reinforce each other in a cycle, which results in further oppression of the Palestinian woman.
Despite their contributions and the heroic role, they have taken for their nation, female Palestinian prisoners – who struggle in detention just like their male counterparts and often suffer from systema

Alaniz-Alvarez, Nieto-Samaniego and Cruz-Alaniz – Use of Humour to Diminish the Gender Gap of Women in STEM Careers
In the elementary education curriculum, the concepts of mass, weight, gravity, velocity, and acceleration are taught in the 5th and 6th grades, around the ages that girls are entering puberty and roughly one or two years earlier than boys enter puberty. Empirical evidence shows that few women choose to study for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. We hypothesize that few women opt to pursue a STEM career because they had less capacity or interest to retain basic science concepts during puberty compared to boys. To study this, we showed a video featuring a specific science topic to 92 classrooms for 5th and 6th graders at 17 public schools in Mexico (N = 1175). The instructional strategy was a 30-minute video about “the continental drift.” Immed

Palmer – Cultivating Global Citizenship Education in Context
ABSTRACT
As educators grapple with the notion of global interconnectivity in classrooms, there is increasing pressure to determine a contextual response to global citizenship education (GCE). While nominal overtones addressing GCE have been documented by an increasing array of scholars extensive evidence-based activations of GCE have yet to be made available to the latent practitioner. This paper explores the deepening GCE conceptual terrain through three proposed activations of GCE in schools; namely, authenticating, substantiating and co-creating. These suggested applications are aligned with a theoretical framework presented by Andreotti, Biesta, and Ahenakew outlining GCE dispositions. The juxtaposition of these concepts, the author argues, provides practical buoyancy to the no

Rosas and Botelho – Virtudes (Oporto): Exhibition at The Google Arts & Culture —from a Project Lab in Classroom to a Real Cultural Management Program
ABSTRACT
The “Virtudes (Oporto): Exhibition at the Google Arts & Culture” project’s innovative character resides in the possibility of implementing an integrated cultural management program applied to a concrete object – the Virtudes urban space – of a scientific investigation that is oriented and put to practice as a heritage laboratory, both inside the classroom and in fieldwork contexts. The Virtudes is the only historic and public garden included in the UNESCO Historic Centre of Oporto site. With this project we intend to: 1) create a virtual exhibition in a free access virtual platform (Google Arts & Culture); 2) create an integrated cultural management program solely focused on this urban space, which would also include the following activities: a physical exhibition, a ca

Bukalerova, Dolzhikova, Moseikina and Kunovski – The Right to Education of Migrant Children in Russia
The article is devoted to the children of migrants in Russia and the implementation of their right to education. The authors deal with the legal and organizational problems of providing education for the children of migrants in the Russian Federation.
Migrant children, their legal status, and socio-cultural adaptation have been the focus of attention recently as this problem is one of the complex issues of migration regulation processes. Migrant children being potential citizens of the Russian Federation will be able to influence the political and social processes in the country actively.
A sound, balanced migration state policy can help migrants and their children to integrate into the host society, and education is one of the ways. In particular, a great role is played by teaching the l

Hogan – The Modern Diverse School Requires a Modern Diverse Approach
Recent research has highlighted the fact that millennial children have to navigate a far more diverse and complicated system of society than has ever been asked of our teenagers before. Ireland’s emergent transformation from a traditional homogenous society to a nation of new immigrants means that the country’s teachers are on the front line of educating a more diverse student population. This new diverse group of young students brings with them a new and diverse set of problems. Research also points to the fact that there is inherent in our educational structures a system of ‘looking away’ from a difficult child. Slee (2011) refers to this ‘looking away’ as a ‘collective indifference.' Cohen (2001) goes further and intimates that ‘both people and societies deny psychologic
