This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in education. As with IAFOR’s other events, ECE2016 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
The European Conference on Education 2016 (ECE2016) will be held alongside The European Conference on Technology in the Classroom 2016 (ECTC2016), and The European Conference on Language Learning 2016 (ECLL2016) on June 29-July 3, 2016 in Brighton, United Kingdom at the Waterfront Hotel. Registration for any one of these conferences will allow attendees to attend sessions in the others.

Conference Theme and Streams
Conference Theme: “Education and Social Justice: Democratizing Education“
The conference theme for ECE2016 is “Education and Social Justice: Democratizing Education”, and the organisers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.
In this conference – one of a series of five held in 2016 on education and social justice – participants are invited to explore and question ways in which education can transcend borders of space, identity, culture and more, and to consider the ways in which education can develop (or hinder) social justice.
