CALL FOR ABSTRACT AND PAPERS

FOR THE IBEROAMERICAN JOURNAL OF DEVELOPMENT STUDIES,

VOLUME 8, NUMBER 1 (JANUARY-JUNE 2019)

 

MONOGRAPH:

"GOOD LIVING GOALS

AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS"

 

Scope and objective:

The Sustainable Development Goals have become, since 2015, the central elements of the international agenda for development cooperation. These goals are based on the sustainable development concept, which was questioned from the outset by the indigenous Amazonian communities of Ecuador, who proposed sumak kawsay, buen vivir or good living, as an alternative. Therefore, if good living is an alternative to sustainable development, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) should have as an alternative the Good Living Goals (GLG).

These Good Living Goals go beyond the Sustainable Development Goals, as they address the three dimensions of good living, harmony with oneself (personal identity), harmony with society (social equity) and harmony with nature (environmental sustainability) and, therefore, should contribute to the construction of decolonial societies, post-capitalist societies and biocentric societies.

The purpose of the Special Issue would be the realization of proposals of Good Living Goals on a global scale that could contribute to the creation of a global society of good living. It is intended that the authors of the articles make an analysis of the current situation of some of the multiple topics that affect the construction of good living on a global scale to finish by proposing a Good Living Goal related to the subject matter of the analysis. Such analyzes should be supported by some kind of methodology and not be a mere personal reflection of their authors. In order that the monograph has a more homogeneous character, it is suggested to articulate the text trying to answer three questions:

a)      What is "the subject under analysis"? (Analytical-conceptual approach).

b)      How does "the subject under analysis" affect the global good living? (Empirical-descriptive approach).

c)      How should "the subject under analysis" be incorporated as a specific goal in a possible alternative agenda of cooperation based on the Good Living Goals? (Normative approach).

 

Editors:

  • Antonio Luis Hidalgo-Capitán, PhD (Full Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Huelva and member of FLACSO-Spain).
  • Santiago García-Álvarez, PhD (Full Professor of the Faculty of Economic Sciences of the Central University of Ecuador and Deputy Minister of Economy of the Government of Ecuador).

All the articles that are received, by invitation or derived from this open call, will undergo a double blind process of peer review, following the referee form of the Ibero-American Journal of Development Studies, so that the appointments and the references of previous works of the authors appear as anonymous.

All papers must be original and subject to anti-plagiarism review. Authors are requested not to re-elaborate their own previously published documents; in case the authors partially use previous works, they should be cited in the text and clarify the extent to which the new document is new to the previously published.

Abstracts must be sent by e-mail to the Technical Secretariat of the Ibero-American Journal of Development Studies (ried@unizar.es), with a copy to the two editors of the monographic issue (alhc@uhu.es; santygarcial@yahoo.es). Full papers will be uploaded to the Journal’s platform at http://ried.unizar.es/index.php/revista/information/authors
