While interest in the concepts of Education for Liberation continues to grow, there has been little academic investigation into its effectiveness. The existing research, while impressive in some senses, is largely based on small samples, often anecdotal and seldom offers a strong basis for causal inference.
Given the growing interest in the field, the network is convening a committee of researchers to define and undertake a research agenda around Education for Liberation. Please join us by signing up for the Education for Liberation Network's research listserv.
Our research work includes an online database of empirical and theoretical articles on Education for Liberation. The topics we are interested in include, but are not limited to, work exploring the impact of Education for Liberation, work that illustrates the variety of forms Education for Liberation can take, work that illuminates the practical issues involved in sustaining this kind of education and work that explores related conceptual issues (What exactly do we mean by “Education for Liberation?” Is it the same thing as “social justice education?”) .
