Abstract

Today there are two tendencies in apparent contradiction: increasing globalisation and the rise of cultural, religious and national individualities. In the struggle for equity, human rights have followed society from the individual to the universal organization; from civil rights to the “liberation from misery” and the “liberation from fears”. The engine of development is the individual and social forms of constructing our own destiny. Taking advantage of market potential requires general access to education, property and credit. Education forms citizens capable of interacting freely in a multicultural and multi-ideological society, that they manage, understand and enjoy, with different meanings regarding their specific and diverse communities, attitudes and conducts. We are all limited, but have boundless possibilities.
