The Ordination of Women in the Catholic Church

A hystorical excursus: women ministries in early Church; disputed traces of women presbyteral ministry; women diaconal ministry, and differences in ordination rite and functions for deaconesses and deacons of Byzantine Church. The value of person and of reciprocity asks today for identical ordination rite and functions of deaconesses and deacons.

30 min. video with Detlev Ipsen on Urban(izing) Villages and the Mega-urban Landscape in the Pearl River Delta

Discussion: The results of a DFG-funded research project on urbanization and informal dynamics

Large urban agglomerations have emerged over the past decades and, in some cases, entire rural regions were urbanized in less than a decade. These trends not only reflect an unprecedented quantitative dimension of urbanization but also the emergence of new urban forms - beyond urbanism - thus posing new challenges to regional planners, politicians and urban governance actors.
The book has been published in the HABITAT - INTERNATIONAL Series. Beyond Urbanism
