The teaching of History and Social Sciences are faced with profound curricula and epistemological transformations that affect their mutual discipline relations, in tune with new social expectations.
Human and social sciences spare no efforts to contribute to discussions about controversial issues of contemporary societies, including those related to peace and sustainable development.
Without quality education on these crucial issues, such efforts can not succeed. Training the current generation to deal with them is a task more necessary than ever. Research coordination, publications and education in these areas is essential.
Hence the idea put forward in 2009 by a network of researchers and educators, form different countries, to create the International Research Association for History and Social Sciences Education (IRAHSSE).
Its mission is to promote research in History and Social Sciences education, to promote reflection and debate, to train new generations to the major challenges of the present and future world.
