Solidarity, Not Adjustment

Activism learning as (self-)transformation
Chapter
Part of the Bold Visions in Educational Research book series (ICIE)

Abstract

Grounded on the German tradition of Critical Psychology, we have been engaged for years in youth research/work and internationalist activism (Foitzik & Marvakis, 1997). This particular background implies that all the theoretical and practical interventions we are participating in – conceived as “transformative/educative practices” – do not refer to some formalised social practices of education – e.g. to some more or less traditional schooling context.
