The AGORA Centre in the Faculty of Educational sciences in the University of Helsinki coordinates and develops sociological, philosophical, cultural, historical and critical educational research, research networks and research projects. AGORA brings together scholars from a wide variety of multidisciplinary backgrounds, who share an interest in critical theories, philosophies and methodologies in education. The Centre focuses on empirically-grounded theoretical considerations and developing further understanding of social justice and equality as a multifaceted economic, cultural and social phenomenon. Intersectionalities, power, and agency, and societal mechanisms of inequalities are important themes for joint research groups in the AGORA. The Centre unites and develops various research fields and research networks with eminent universities and researchers nationally and internationally.
