Ética para el desarrollo: Fomentar capacidades para formar parte de la solución
AbstractThe main purpose of this article is to highlight the need to prepare citizens so that they can become co-responsible when facing the problem of development. In the first part, the ethical guidelines of the proposal are drawn up. They do not have to be created, since a framework covering the legitimate demands of civil society has already been established by the millennium development goals and three generations of human rights. In the second part, the starting point is Sen’s theory of capabilities, and the stress is placed on the need to promote capabilities that make it possible to account for our responsibility for the problem of development. Finally, in the third part, a teaching resource is presented which raises awareness of the millennium development goals and involves them in the realisation of human rights. This educational practice prepares students to play a leading role in the process of change as well as to be part of the solution.
