Mathematics for Peace and Social Justice: Developing Citizenship though Ethnomodelling

Focus: Mathematics

Currently, relevant issues affecting glocal societies such as national security, personal security, economics, social, educational, health, and environmental disruption, relations among nations, relations among social classes, people’s welfare, the preservation of natural and cultural resources, and many others can be synthesized as Peace in its several dimensions: Inner Peace, Social Peace, Environmental Peace, and Military Peace. These four dimensions are intimately related. Social Justice naturally leads to Social Peace. The four dimensions of Peace are intimately related. In this course we will focus on our reflections Nonkilling mathematics and Social Justice and how Ethnomodelling can contribute to it as well as to the development of citizenship. Thus, we would like to broaden our discussions regarding the possibilities for the inclusion of ethnomodelling, which acts against colonialism and respects the sociocultural diversity with guarantees for the development of understanding of our differences through dialogue and respect in order to empower members of distinct cultural groups against domination and oppression.
Keywords: Citizenship, Ethnomodelling, Mathematics for Peace, Social Justice, Total Peace.
