MARTINEZ CHAPA, Oshiel. The ethical values and agenda of development: some considerations for educational training. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.22, e046.  Epub Sep 20, 2021. ISSN 2007-7467.

This paper reviews a part of the existing literature regarding the close relationship between ethical values and the development agenda in the perspective of educational training, in this case, economics. The fundamental purpose of this research is to analyze the relevance of these foundations today by virtue of the demands for actions in favor of reducing inequalities and improving material living conditions. A qualitative methodology consisting of the study of documents and the consequent reflection on the matter was used. The issue is significant right now when it arises whether higher education educational institutions (IES) contribute to the teaching of values for professional practice. The work shows that economics professionals have generally underestimated the relevance of ethics on the development agenda, and this has long been warned about. The work concludes on the need to promote ethical values as means that enable less unequal social and economic development.

Keywords : social and economic development; education; Judeo-Christianity; curricula; social and ethical responsibility; ethics values.
