Die etiek van emigrasie : 'n Christelik-etiese besinning oor die teenswoordige Suid-Afrikaanse emigrasie
This study addresses the ethics of the South African emigration at present from a Christian ethical perspective. In the first place it evaluates the Christian ethical principles, different ethical systems as well as the human rights relevant to the subject under discussion. Secondly, the most commonly used reasons and motivations for emigration are discussed and further evaluated in the light of the relevant principles, systems and human rights. It concludes that emigration should not be considered without taking into account the important individual responsibilities in the country of birth and the possibility that reality in a foreign country may turn out to be different than expected. As Christians we are called to a life of service in the name of the Triune God and for as long as that is possible in our country of birth and our right to life is not in danger, we should not make the decision to emigrate lightly.
