The UNESCO Chair in Education for Social Justice of the Autonomous University of Madrid has as one of its fundamental axes to develop quality interdisciplinary research, in collaboration with other UNESCO Chairs, universities and research centers, on Education and Social Justice.

The study “Democracy in schools as the foundation of an education for Social Justice” is currently being carried out, an R&D project financed with funds from the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness-Government of Spain.

In the framework of the Chair, a Laboratory on Education and Social Justice has been created. This laboratory of ideas is working on the incorporation of the southern epistemology approaches to Education for Social Justice.
