Azim Premji University invites submissions for the Sixth Philosophy of Education Conference, at Banglore, from January 11-13, 2018 on the theme 'Moral and Political Education'. Submissions should address the questions related to moral and political issues in learning, teaching and school curricula with concerns of:
  1. What ought to be the programme of moral education in a democratic secular society?
  2. How is value education distinguished from moral, civic and political education?
  3. How is education for citizenship related to the development of moral and political sense among children?
  4. How is education for peace or human rights related to developing a moral and political conscience in children?
Authors are, however, encouraged to explore the given theme from a range of perspectives beyond the above subthemes. We especially look for submissions from young scholars and doctoral students.

Submission Requirements: Full papers of 4500-5000 words should be uploaded on or after June 1, 2017 on the link provided at www.azimpremjiuniversity.edu.in/poe/
