The 10th Annual Conference is a meeting place for researchers, graduate students, education policymakers, and civil society activists from across Europe and internationally.

It is a unique opportunity to present and discuss current research and policy relating to education for human rights and democratic citizenship.

Book Launch

As well as paper presentations, this year's conference will feature the launch of Professor Audrey Osler's new book: Human Rights and Schooling: An Ethical Framework for Teaching for Social Justice to be published by Teachers College Press in May 2016.

Call for papers

As in previous years we invite papers that address any aspect of education for human rights and democratic citizenship. This can include struggles to develop human rights education or to promote a human rights culture in schools or the community. Human rights include children's rights.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words including name, institutional affiliation and contact email should be sent, no later than Monday 25 April 2016 to: Professor Hugh Starkey: h.starkey@ioe.ac.uk. All abstracts will be peer reviewed by members of the ICEDC steering group. Please indicate whether you would prefer to give an oral or a poster presentation. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the review by Friday 29 April 2016. Similar to previous years, selected papers will be considered for publication in the peer-reviewed journal London Review of Education.
