PhD project

An Analysis of Public Policies for Field Education: Complexities and Controversies
José Brás

The embryonic thesis will be the result of a research whose aim is to analyse the Public Policies for Field Education, trying to understand if, in fact, these policies are in accordance with the peasants’ interests, expressed in the demands of the National Articulation Movement for a Field Education. During the research, we intend to highlight the complex and contradictory nature of educational policies for rural people, developed in the period from the 1990s to the present day.
