ECER 2018



"Inclusion and Exclusion, Resources for Educational Research?”


In times of wars and conflicts, increasing numbers of migrants and refugees, impairment of a European identity and, at the same time, of an increasing re-nationalisation and attempts to construct Europe as a fortress, it is the more important to reflect on and analyse the particular contributions of education and educational research to processes and structures of inclusion and exclusion.

The ECER 2018 will discuss structures and processes of inclusion and exclusion, of recognition and misrecognition, regarding their relevance for education and educational research and significantly contribute to making such tensions both a scholarly and a public theme.

The ECER 2018 aims to theoretically, empirically and practically conceptualise, investigate and experience intercultural communication as a powerful resource for mediation, mutual understanding, and intellectual delight.
