Juha Janne Olavi Uski

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


Education for Active Non-violence examines the ideas and the practice of the Humanist Movement, an international movement against varied forms of violence. The research focuses on the process of learning through participation in the Humanist Movement in Mumbai, India, and is especially directed towards insights about the challenges to that educational practice. The field study involves interviews of nine members with varied kinds of participation in the movement. Theories by Robert K. Greenleaf, Silo, Paulo Freire, Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger are applied for gaining perspective on the discussions of the case study; research papers about the social situation in Mumbai are also referred to. Case study research methodology is based on semi-structured interviews analysed through a combination of interactionist and hermeneutic methods.
