DE REZENDE, Maria José. Os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento do Milênio e as ações voluntárias: em questão os esforços individuais e o processo de individualização. Convergencia [online]. 2008, vol.15, n.48, pp.105-135. ISSN 2448-5799.

The fulfillment of the millennium goals established by United Nations has been on the agenda since 2000. There are a lot of divergences concerning the ways, actions and more adequate agents to put practices and forms of action into effect in order to achieve the MDGs. This article will deal with discussions, propositions, actions, procedures of programs (UNDP, UNV) linked to UN's concern on the role of volunteers on the expansion of actions which may increase the number of people involved with MDGs. Its purpose is to understand the social and political effects of this way of assigning the volunteers a considerable importance in a context of multiple attempts of emptying the role of the State as well as of the social struggles in this process of constructing mechanisms to fight absolute poverty and social problems.

Keywords : Millennium Development Goals; individualization; voluntarism.
