The international research conference ‘Promoting justice through education’, 22-23 May 2018 in Helsinki, examines educational policies and practices in a critical light from a Nordic perspective.

The Nordic education systems of today are facing increasing influences of market-oriented competition, social stratification and marginalization or social exclusion. 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.

You are warmly invited to submit an abstract for a paper or an interactive poster presentation. We also welcome symposium submissions. The abstract submission deadline is 15 January 2018.
