International Journal of Social Pedagogy

Welcome to the International Journal of Social Pedagogy.

ISSN 2051-5804

The interdisciplinary field of social pedagogy is developing and evolving constantly, seeking strong connection between, and unity of, theory and practice. The International Journal of Social Pedagogy considers it critically important to provide a platform for dialogue between theory and practice. It therefore encourages both original contributions about theory and research in social pedagogy and articles that reflect social pedagogical perspectives in practice settings throughout the United Kingdom and globally.
