Humanist journalism (or its lacking…) in the coverage of a crime with a child victim

A popular statement in journalism says that “a dog biting a man is not news, but a man biting a dog is definitely news”. Irony aside, we can acknowledge some truth in this statement. Disturbances of any nature in our daily lives inevitably capture our attention. They can be as trivial as a car crashing reflecting on the traffic or a storm that cut down some trees and closed streets....

Skills for an uncertain future

Core skills consider the flexibility that we must develop in an uncertain world, increasingly global, with high mobility of people, information, and changing services. Carlos Barros Well-being between the personal and professional spheres is an increasingly heated debate among the various events on the themes of organisational and personal development. In fact, we cannot separate the well-being of the individual in their personal sphere from their professional sphere, but we...

THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL ECONOMY NETWORKS IN THE PROMOTION OF INTEGRAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT (Abalroado, T.)

It is necessary to work collectively and bring together the actors to cooperate and work together, meeting a common interest. The strategic decisions of organizations should not be separated from the context of existing relationships, as organizations influence and are influenced not only by the direct relationships they establish with their stakeholders but by the network in which they are inserted. Simaens, A., 2012 Any person, in the course of...

Ageing: a social challenge?

The increasing awareness that in the western world more people are living to a later age, but that there may be fewer people available for the care required, has made it essential to consider attitudes and behaviours regarding ageism and cooperation with the most immediate network. Carlos Barros The difficulty to support various age groups has increased, creating pressure on what should be effective social support and solidarity – whether...

The sustainable development goals in higher education curricula: Where we are and where we need to go

Formal, non-formal and informal education must be reformulated to foster a sustainable society. However, it is paramount to recognize the barriers that hinder the promotion of education for sustainable development, namely the lack of teacher training in this field and even the lack of understanding of sustainability issues among higher education teachers © Ana Marta Aleixo, UCP, 2022 Photo by Freepik There are only 8 more years to fulfil the...

RECOGNITION AND FORMS OF DISRESPECT (Pereira, A.)

This third blog post will continue my reflection on issues pertaining migrant women, integration and discrimination topics. I will propose here a special focus on the general forms of disrespect based on Axel Honnet’s (1992-2021) perspective concerning recognition theories and also on the multiple ways how those forms of disrespect and misrecognition or non-recognition might impact human beings and relationships. Females, namely migrant women, are especially concerned – although they...

The active principle of the Ugly

The Ugly is not a “Being”. The Ugly is a “Becoming”. Its condition is not static. It lives in a relative, entropic, and never definitive axiological spectrum. It is a negation, the active principle of negation. Finding a “frame” of the Ugly implies recognizing dimensions of reality that distance us from a promise of happiness [1] and on which the process of making something invisible appears as the possible response...

We need to hear the migrants’ voices

Although there are a relatively considerable number of news pieces on migration, we barely see migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers quoted in the news. Without truly hearing them, we can’t acknowledge their perspective. Ester Minga At the beginning of May, I watched the play Une Histoire Bizarre, directed by Sebastião Martins and produced by Associação Juvenil Ponte (with the support of the High Commission for Migration; Lisbon Municipal Chamber; and...
