L'ACCESSO ALLA CONOSCENZA - COMPONENTE ESSENZIALE DELLO SVILUPPO UMANO (ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE - THE ESSENTIAL COMPONENT OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT)

Oleksandra Mladenova

Abstract


L'accesso alla conoscenza è una componente essenziale per il funzionamento e lo sviluppo di una società sana e democratica. L'accesso all'informazione è un diritto umano fondamentale - essenziale per la sopravvivenza umana e l'evoluzione. Senza una cittadinanza ben informata, il dibattito pubblico razionale non può avvenire su questioni politiche, sociali, ambientali o economici. Senza ampio dibattito, l'ampio consenso su cui si basa una sana democrazia non può essere raggiunto. L'accesso alla conoscenza è fondamentale per l'educazione e la ricerca e a la creazione di capitale umano su cui lo sviluppo delle società dipendono. Ciò è particolarmente vero nella società dell'informazione in cui il progresso economico dipende dall'avere una popolazione alfabetizzata ed educata.

 

Access to knowledge is an essential component for the functioning and developing of a healthy and democratic society. Access to information is a basic human right – essential for human survival and evolution. Without a well-informed citizenry, rational public debate cannot take place on political, social, environmental or economic matters. Without widespread debate, the broad consensus upon which a healthy democracy is based cannot be achieved. Access to knowledge is fundamental to education and research and the creation of human capital upon which the development of societies depend. This is especially true in the information society where economic progress depends on having a literate and educated population.
