Towards a Pedagogy of a New Social Contract: Lessons from Participatory Budgeting in the State of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil).
Streck, Danilo R.
This paper analyzes the pedagogical dimension within the process of participatory budgeting in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, taking into consideration the local and regional culture, as well as the political milieu. The question is whether, in this social movement which involved around 400,000 people in 2001, signs can be identified that contribute to an education geared towards the political-pedagogical works of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Paulo Freire, signaling the creation of the modern social contract and the search for another contract, with their respective pedagogical approaches. The paper proposes to begin a dialogue between Rousseau and Freire, who are situated in the extremes of the modern social contract. (Contains 15 notes and 21 references.) (Author/BT)
