The Department of International Development, Maynooth University is pleased to host a conversation and critical exploration of the relevance of Paulo Freire to our world today.  

The conference will examine his influence across three sectors: the academy, the community and globally, asking what relevance and influence (if any) has Freire to development concerns now.  

The day has a great line-up of speakers including David Archer, ActionAid, Zoryana Pshyk, and Eilish Dillon, Maynooth University in the morning.
