Quale programma per lo sviluppo? Una nota a partire dalla dottrina sociale della Chiesa

  • Simona BERETTA

    (Universita' Cattolica di Milano)

Registered author(s):

    Catholic Social Teaching expresses the paradoxical claim that the Church «offers her first contribution to the solution of the urgent problem of development when she proclaims the truth about Christ, about herself and about man» (SRS, 41). This note discusses its implication for development programming, with reference to the Millennium Development Goals and to some consensus principles: quantitative targets, ownership, comprehensiveness and empowerment. Applying the two core principles of CST, namely personal dignity of each human being and ontological unity of the human family, the paper poses some questions about how to conceive development programming and how to effectively achieve the desired development outcome, caring about the process of getting there. This points to the need of providing not just for innovative instruments for development financing but also for institutional conditions that facilitate personal initiative and commitment to practical and concrete love for every human being.
