"Il principio di fraternità nell’educazione politica dei cittadini"
Abstract: This paper is an essay on the relationship between politics (poli- cy and politics) and “political education”, specifically about “political education” to citizenship. The paper studies a model for education in tune with our times: a cosmopolitan political education based on hu- man rights. From this point of view, the principle of fraternity helps us to think pedagogically about “human rights education” (including duties as well as rights). In an interdependent world, fraternity can guide us in the transmission through education of the best human behaviour, and help us to think pedagogically about the best ways of achieving a global consensus regarding responsibility for the safe- guarding of our common future.
