The 3rd International Conference – Paulo Freire: The Global Legacy

The 3rd International Conference – Paulo Freire: The Global Legacy (Nov 29-Dec 2), will bring together educators, academics, students, researchers, and practitioners to reflect on the current status of his pedagogical thought and its application across a wide variety of academic disciplines. 

Paulo Freire: Authentic Liberation

“Authentic liberation – the process of humanization – is not another deposit to be made in men. Liberation is a praxis: the action and reflection of men and women upon their world in order to transform it…” – Paulo Freire

Paulo Freire: conscientização

According to Paulo Freire’s translator, “the term conscientização refers to learning to perceive social, political, and economic contradictions, and to take action against the oppressive elements of reality.”

Paulo Freire: Inquiry & Violence

“Any situation in which some individuals prevent others from engaging in the process of inquiry is one of violence. The means used are not important; to alienate human beings from their own decision making is to change them into objects.” -Paulo Freire


Paulo Freire: Inquiry & Praxis

“For apart from inquiry, apart from the praxis, individuals cannot be truly human. Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.” -Paulo Freire

Paulo Freire on problem-posing education

“In problem-posing education, people develop their power to perceive critically the way they exist in the world with which and in which they find themselves; they come to see the world not as a static reality, but as a reality in process, in transformation.” – Paul Freire
