In the Nordic countries equality, democracy and welfare have been central values in the society, paving the way for promoting justice through education. However, the understandings of why and how justice is attained through education have changed in the course of the last decades along with other societal changes. The increasing influences of market-oriented competition, social stratification and marginalization or social exclusion are some of the challenges facing education justice, equity and equality in the Nordic education systems today.

This conference problematizes the current educational trends in Nordic education and explores new possibilities for promoting justice, equity and equality through educational politics, governance, inclusive educational practices and agency of teachers and students, at all levels of education.
