    Educating Engineers for the Public Good Through International Internships: Evidence From a Case Study at Universitat Politècnica de València.Alejandra Boni, José Javier Sastre & Carola Calabuig - 2015 - Science and Engineering Ethics 25 (6):1799-1815.
    At Universitat Politècnica de València, Meridies, an internship programme that places engineering students in countries of Latin America, is one of the few opportunities the students have to explore the implications of being a professional in society in a different cultural and social context. This programme was analyzed using the capabilities approach as a frame of reference for examining the effects of the programme on eight student participants. The eight pro-public-good capabilities proposed by Melanie Walker were investigated through semi-structured interviews. (...)

    Competencies in Higher Education: A Critical Analysis From the Capabilities Approach.J. Felix Lozano, Alejandra Boni, Jordi Peris & Andrés Hueso - 2012 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 46 (1):132-147.
    With the creation of the European Higher Education Area, universities are undergoing a significant transformation that is leading towards a new teaching and learning paradigm. The competencies approach has a key role in this process. But we believe that the competence approach has a number of limitations and weaknesses that can be overcome and supplanted by the capabilities approach. In this article our objective is twofold: first, make a critical analysis of the concept of competence as it is being used (...)

    The Impact of the Multinational in the Development: An Ethical Challenge. [REVIEW]J. Félix Lozano & Alejandra Boni - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 39 (1-2):169 - 178.
    Multinational enterprises have continued their increase during the last decades. What these companies do and how they do, determines not only the economic development of countries, but also their social and cultural development. This enormous power implies responsibility and new challenges.If we also take into account the role of multinational enterprises in what has been called sustainable development, we see that their importance is still more decisive.

    The Use of Moral Dilemmas for Teaching Agricultural Engineers.J. Félix Lozano, Guillermo Palau-Salvador, Vicent Gozálvez & Alejandra Boni - 2006 - Science and Engineering Ethics 12 (2):327-334.
    Agricultural engineers’ jobs are especially related to sustainability and earth life issues. They usually work with plants or animals, and the aim of their work is often linked to producing food to allow people to improve their quality of life. Taking into account this dual function, the moral requirements of their day-to-day professional practice are arguably greater than those of other professions. Agricultural engineers can develop their ability to live up to this professional responsibility by receiving ethical training during their (...)

    Higher Education and the Post-2015 Agenda: A Contribution From the Human Development Approach.Alejandra Boni, Aurora Lopez-Fogues & Melanie Walker - 2016 - Journal of Global Ethics 12 (1):17-28.
    ABSTRACTSustainable Development Goals will guide the global development agenda for the coming years. Under this premise, this article explores the role which higher education has been assigned in contributing to sustainable human development, and concludes that the vision of HE offered is too narrow and unable to capture the essence and full meaning of sustainable human development. Moving away from problematic indicators and thresholds that understand HE as a producer of human capital, the article proposes placing the concept of human (...)
