Education, cooperation and development

Pedro Ortega Ruiz y Ramón Mínguez Vallejos


The present paper criticizes the current conditions imposed on poorer countries in their path to economic development, describes a number of cooperation models and presents a new conception of human development. It focuses on education for cooperative development. People's growth and development requires the preparation and training of those involved in the task. The education for cooperative development is approached from a moral perspective and, more specifically, from the perspective of education for compassion. Finally, a number of strategies geared toward this type of education are presented: communication, self-control, and moral discussion strategies that make those in charge of cooperation aware of other people's living conditions.
