Time to apply for the JustEd Summer School 2014!

The application for the JustEd 2014 Summer School ‘Methodological approaches to justice through education’ is now open. This year, the course will focus on methodological and analytical possibilities and challenges in research on justice through education. Students will be challenged to reflect upon and formulate the methodological implications of their own research, while developing their understanding about the possibilities and challenges of research on justice through education. The summer school, which takes place in Helsinki on 17-22 August 2014, also offers an excellent networking opportunity in a stimulating and international academic environment.  More information about the Summer School and the application procedure here.Hanaholmen
