dc.description.abstract This paper argues that the approach to peace, conflict and development issues in the world today, in particular Africa, should be underpinned by strong ethical values. In the Theory of Moral Sentiments, Adam Smith declared the need for actions based on universal values which go far beyond the motivation of self-interest. The humanistic considerations of empathy, justice, and selfless service are values that must be at the heart of decision making for attaining the goal of healthy communities in Africa. In fact, many conflicts in the world today are a result of a lack of prudence, public spiritedness, solidarity, transparency and democratic accountability. en_US
