Hace casi un cuarto de siglo, quienes en España nos dedicábamos a la Filosofía de la Educación, decidimos establecer reuniones conjuntas para aportar conocimientos y experiencias en torno a cuestiones educativas de plena actualidad. Primeramente decidimos organizar un congreso, cuyas características habrían de ser las tres siguientes. Primera: se invitaría como conferenciantes y ponentes a todos los que se dedicaran a la filosofía de la educación en las universidades españolas, sin excluir a ninguno, y sin que con ello se pretendiera obligar a nadie, pues es evidente que el tema del Congreso no tendría que entrar en el ámbito de intereses de todos. Segunda: el Congreso debería ser Internacional, no sólo por sus asistentes sino también por los conferenciantes invitados, por mucho que ello elevara los costes, por razones obvias. Y tercera, que se daría la oportunidad de colaborar en el Congreso a todos los asistentes que presentaran un trabajo pertinente. Realizamos el primer Congreso en 1989 y el séptimo lo hemos celebrado en 2012, con una gran asistencia de académicos de numerosas naciones. De ello es muestra este libro de Actas, que tiene 90 trabajos escritos por más de un centenar de personas. Su lectura, que no puede ser rápida ya que tiene numerosísimas páginas, expresa la variedad de perspectivas que desde el principio deseamos para estas reuniones. En esta ocasión, el tema abordado por el Congreso ha sido la relación entre educación, libertad y cuidado, con el que deseábamos responder a unas preocupaciones que, iniciadas hace años, van adquiriendo cada vez mayor densidad. En efecto, desde Kant y más recientemente desde la década de los 70, se ha ido subrayando la importancia de cultivar la autonomía de la persona como elemento básico de desarrollo de la personalidad. Este objetivo es incuestionable, pero el tiempo ha ido poniendo de manifiesto que cuando la autonomía se subraya en exceso, surgen problemas humanos muy relevantes. Ello explica que hace ya más de veinte años comenzaran a publicarse trabajos sobre la importancia del cuidado en la educación, asunto que debería estudiarse tanto para identificar su significado más profundo como para analizar sus relaciones con la libertad de quienes van a ser objetos de ese cuidado. Estas Actas, que son parte relevante de los trabajos presentados en el Congreso, proporcionan unas reflexiones sobre estos problemas verdaderamente significativas.

The Decent Society
Author: Avishai Margalit
Publisher: Harvard University Press
How to be decent, how to build a decent society, emerges out of Margalit's analysis of the corrosive functioning of humiliation in its many forms. This is a deeply felt book that springs from Margalit's experience at the borderlands of conflicts between Eastern Europeans and Westerners, between Palestinians and Israelis.
Challenges for Human Rights
Author: Fernando Falcón y Tella
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers
Nowadays we are fortunate enough to be experiencing a boom in human rights - an enormous increase of their importance in the international sphere at all levels (political, economic, social, legal and moral). For the first time the condition of the individual as "citizen," and not just as "subject," has gained importance. Individuals, and not only states, have now become the subjects of international law, as a result of the boom in humanitarian law and international criminal law. However, although there have been many battles won and goals met concerning human rights, the war against injustice continues and the fight has not ended. It is necessary to stay alert and to avoid a potentially paralyzing self-complacency. This collection focusses on topics that are particularly relevant for the present era. It examines issues such as multiculturalism, globalization, international criminal justice (specifically third and fourth generation rights) and, within this thematic framework, the problems that have come about as a result of the expanding reach of the Internet and of new biomedical advances. In addition, it explores the increasingly urgent challenge of how to respond to international terrorism, in view of worldwide events since September 11, 2001, and its resulting aftermath. Originally published in Spanish, this thought-provoking collection will be of interest to human rights scholars and practitioners alike.

Business and Human Rights
Author: Wesley Cragg
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
The relationship between business and human rights has emerged in the last two decades as one of the most pressing issues in the field of business ethics. Do corporations have human rights responsibilities? If so, what is that nature of those responsibilities and do they differ in any significant way from those of governments? Is it reasonable or realistic to expect corporations to respect human rights in environments where governments, particularly in the developing and underdeveloped world, need economic development and have a limited capacity and/or interest in enforcing human rights standards and laws? The contributors to this groundbreaking volume take up these questions, examining them from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Topics discussed include the debates leading to the creation of the ISO 26000 standard and the United Nations human rights framework for business entities, as well as the nature and limits of the human rights responsibilities of business, the roles and responsibilities of international trade bodies like the World Trade Organization in protecting human rights, and the implications of the current debate for international trade agreements and trade with China. The contributors also explore the effectiveness of voluntary human rights standards in the textile and clothing trade, mining, advertising and the pharmaceutical industry. Scholars and students in management, philosophy, political science, sociology and law will find this volume a great resource, as will activists, managers and policy makers.
How far should religious practices be curtailed in pursuit of other social goals, such as equality and the removal of discrimination? This book reasons that religious freedom is one of our most precious freedoms, and essential to democracy, drawing on examples from across the Western world.

Water as a Human Right?
Author: John Scanlon, Angela Cassar, Noémi Nemes
Formally acknowledging water as a human right could encourage the international community and governments to enhance their efforts to satisfy basic human needs and to meet the Millennium Development Goals. But critical questions arise in relation to a right to water. What would be the benefits and content of such a right? What mechanisms would be required for its effective implementation? Should the duty be placed on governments alone, or should the responsibility also be borne by private actors? Is another 'academic debate' on this subject warranted when action is really what is necessary? Without claiming to prescribe the answers, this publication clearly and carefully sets out the competing arguments and the challenges.

Facilitating Freedom of Religion or Belief: A Deskbook
Author: W. Cole Durham, Tore Sam Lindholm, Bahia Tahzib-Lie, NA Oslo Coalition on Freedom of Religion or Belief, NA Norway, NA Norsk senter for menneskerettigheter, NA Brigham Young University
This collection asks theorists and educational practitioners from around the world influenced by the schools of feminist pedagogy, critical pedagogy, anti-racist or postcolonial pedagogy, and gay and lesbian pedagogy to reflect upon the possibilities of articulating a "curriculum of difference" that critically examines the cross-cultural issues of peace and education that are at the forefront of global education issues today. Contributors examine the conceptualizations of peace and education within, between, and across cultures through the conceptualization of pedagogical possibilities that create an openness toward the horizons of the other within communal formations of difference permeating the public sphere. They take up new ways of questions related to globalization, difference, community, identity, peace, democracy, sexuality, ethics, conflict, politics, feminism, technology, language rights, cultural politics, Marxism, and deconstruction that have a vast literary history in and outside the area of "education." This volume makes a significant contribution to the question of difference and its quintessential role in peace education for the new millennium.
