4th Global Conference: Storytelling. Prague, Czech Republic 2013

Human life is conducted through story, which comes naturally to us. Sharing stories is arguably the most important way we have of communicating with others about who we are and what we believe; about what we are doing and have done; about our hopes and fears; about what we value and what we don’t. We learn about and make sense of our lives by telling the stories that we live; and we learn about other lives by listening to the stories told by others. Sometimes, under the influence of the culture in which we are immersed, we live our lives in ways that try to create the stories we want to be able to tell about them.

Interpreting the South African Constitution in Educational contexts. Hilton Hotel, Sandton, South Africa 2012

The purpose of this Conference is to explore the meaning of the South African Constitution in educational contexts. In other words, how should the various provisions of the South African Bill of Rights be interpreted when applied to education. What are the rights of teachers, learners, administrators, and parents? How should the courts balance competing claims of individual rights?

While the text of the South African Constitution is certainly relevant for such a discussion, international treaties and decisions from other countries interpreting similar provisions are particularly relevant. Indeed, the Constitution itself mandates that the Constitutional Court must consider international law and may consider foreign law.
