I invite you to contribute to a Special Issue on Democracy, Justice, and Human Rights Education. The purpose of this issue is to explore the relationship between democracy, justice, and human rights education in different social contexts and from within a plurality of theoretical and pedagogical perspectives. While the focus of the issue is broadly conceived, contributions can address, but are not limited to, the following questions: In what ways is human rights education situated within, and thereby informed by, the principles and values of democracy and justice? In what ways is human rights education an urgent matter of justice? In what ways is human rights education a democratic imperative? In what ways can human rights education serve as a means of the realization of justice and democracy? In what ways do the values, principles, and imperatives of justice and democracy inform the theory and practice of human rights education? The intention of this issue is to examine the democratic and normative political foundations of human rights education. Please consider contributing to the issue.
Prof. Dr. Dale T. Snauwaert
