Schostak, John – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2019
The radical inclusion of the different interests and powers of all is fundamental to social equality.

Mendel, Maria – Research in Education, 2019

Hansen, Dion Rüsselbaek; Phelan, Anne M. – Research in Education, 2019

This crisis can be explained variously, depending on how it is understood and on what basis. From our point of view, and with inspiration from thinkers as Nietzsche, Arendt, Agamben and Rancière, we argue…

Feu, Jordi; Serra, Carles; Canimas, Joan; Làzaro, Laura; Simó-Gil, Núria – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In the educational sphere, the concept of "democracy" is used in many and varied ways, though the hegemonic school culture often starts from a concept of democracy that is taken for granted, and it is understood that the entire educational community shares a similar concept. As a result of the research project "Democracy,…
