Submission Guidelines

The purpose of Congress is to promote discussion and reflection on the problems of Humanism and Citizenship. Congress focuses on the challenges, opportunities, and threats of today. It discusses the issues of (re)construction of full citizenship in the context of today’s society’s problems.

The II Congress will address several expressions of Citizenship and Humanism, focusing on Human Rights in the most diverse thematic areas: education, political science, religion, sport, social and community intervention, social service, among others.

Its drive is to offer the exchange of studies, investigations and reflections on issues present today, enabling learning and mutual collaboration and discussing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in different spheres.
