Inequity, Social Justice and Moral Education
For the first time, the annual meeting of the Association for Moral Education will be held in a Latin American country (Brazil). Considering the context of poverty, social and economic inequality and historical non-democratic regimens in most of its countries, this Conference create an exceptional opportunity for scholars, students and practitioners to debate the role that moral education, psychology, philosophy and sociology can play in the struggle for justice, citizenship development, inclusion and democracy.
Symposia, papers and posters at the conference will address philosophical and theoretical analysis, reports of empirical research and educational strategies and experiences that foster the social and individual development.
Following the goals of the Association for Moral Education, this Conference aims to provide an international forum for the interdisciplinary study of the moral and ethical dimensions of human development and education, fostering communication and cooperation among scholars and practitioners considering all aspects of moral learning, development and action across the life-span in multiple roles and contexts, including the school, family, workplace, congregation, and the larger society.
