Abstract:
La souveraineté est un principe universel fondée sur l'exercice de tous les droits de l'homme interdépendants ; elle se réalise au travers de multiples coopérations. Chaque droit de l'homme est une capacité et un facteur de développement puisqu'il garantit des accès, dégage des libertés et renforce des responsabilités. Cela signifie que la réalisation de chacun des droits civils, culturels, économiques, politiques ou sociaux constitue un développement des personnes et des tissus sociaux. Cette synthèse se présente comme un guide théorique destiné aux responsables de politiques et de structures publiques, d'organisations de la société civile ou d'entreprises, aux praticiens pour le montage interactif des projets, de leur suivi et de leur évaluation, et enfin aux responsables de formation et aux étudiants.
