About Democratic Dialogue
Democratic Dialogue is committed to the critical exploration of democratic ideals in education and society through a program of international collaborative research and dissemination.
We engage educators, political scientists, sociologists, philosophers, teachers, policymakers, and cultural workers (e.g., artists, curators, and critics) as well as the broader public community who are concerned with ideals, tensions, policies, and practices of education for democracy.
Democratic Dialogue reaches across disciplinary, institutional, and national boundaries through innovative research projects and methods of dissemination, community dialogues and events, and the pursuit of creative approaches to projects that engage themes of democracy, education, and society.
The notion of democracy rightly occupies a privileged place in Canadian society and international discourse. Democracy informs our national and international struggles to create social and cultural institutions that are humanly satisfying and humanely justified. Changing social and cultural realities – for example, an increasingly global world community and the pluralism a global community necessitates – call for new ways of articulating, educating for, and enacting democratic citizenship.
