Abstract

This paper addresses problems of educational governance in globalization contexts, exploring actions that might become social development options, taking mainly into account Southern authors´ formulations geared towards social development. We suggest, at the end, that such foundations may contribute for the construction of educational policies that will foster global citizenship in the context of the extremely competitive governance arena.
