KLAASEN, John. The ecumenical movement and development: The role of personhood. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.43, n.3, pp.323-335. ISSN 2312-878X.

This article is part of several contributions that was presented at the 2015 Southern African Missiological Society (SAMS). The conference theme was undergirded by the theme of the World Council of Churches (WCC) assembly in Busan, South Korea and the recent Encyclical of Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church; "Together towards life". The specific contribution of this article lies with the role of personhood in development. The question that I seek to address is to what extent the influential models of development proposed by Korten and more importantly, the ecumenical movement, can do justice to the category of personhood. A secondary question is the complex process through which people come to accept responsibility for addressing their situations.

Palabras clave : Ecumenical Movement; development; personhood; responsibility; mission; poor; agency.
