Shapes of freedom: in rights theory and educational practice
Örebro University, School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences. (SMED)
2012 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this paper, a philosophical and rights theoretical perspective is applied to the story The Freedom Bird. In the story, freedom takes form as something that cannot be destroyed, and the story suggests that attempts to do so will just make freedom assume another shape. In this vein, and from a human rights perspective, freedom can be seen as a basic fundament to the very idea of human rights. The paper will raise the questions: What is ‘freedom’ from a rights theoretical perspective? What does ‘freedom rights’ include? Based on these considerations, education will be discussed as a setting for children’s and young peoples’ freedom, particularly concerning how children’s and young people’s capacity to claim and exercise freedom is promoted and allowed to grow, and how education may fail to respect children’s and young peoples’ freedom rights and restrict their possibilities to grow in capacity to exercise freedom.
