Global Justice In and Through Education

David T. McGovern Grand Salon (C-104) | 6 rue du Colonel Combes, 75007 Paris
Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 18:00 to Friday, November 30, 2018 - 18:00

Contemporary political philosophers and philosophers of education tend to focus on theorizing the interconnections between the concepts of education and justice at the level of the nation-state. The workshop explores the implications of shifting this level of analysis from the national to the global level. It considers how to conceive of global educational justice and examines the role of education in fighting global injustices.
