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 Chair carries out different studies. Currently, there are diverse lines of research from competitive calls:

    • “Rural 3.0: Service Learning for the Rural Development (RURASL)”. A project funded by the European Union within the ERASMUS + KA2 Call of the Europe 2020 Strategy. The project establishes a framework for an integrated transnational approach to academic teaching and learning that contributes to the development of rural areas, satisfying their needs and promoting innovation through Service-Learning, as an innovative methodology, and creating partnerships between communities and universities.

    • “Blended learning in schools: a universal design approach”. A project funded by the European Union within the ERASMUS+ (2021-2024). The project aims to adapt the Universal Learning Design framework in the digital environment and create tools that help teachers to design their programming for all students, whether in the physical or virtual classroom.

    • “Support networks in the university inclusion of gypsies and gypsies”. Research funded by the Chair of Gypsy Culture of the University of Alicante. The objective of this research is to visualize the main support function exercised by informal networks and third sector organizations in achieving academic success for Roma students.

In addition, the Chair is part of the International Research Network on Education for Social Justice and collaborates with three research networks: Research Network on Service-Learning in Physical Activity and Sport for Social Inclusion (RIADIS), Research Network on Leadership and Improvement of Education (RILME) and Iberoamerican Research Network on School Change and Efficacy (RINACE).

Within 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 approaches of the southern epistemologies to the Education for Social Justice.
