The intent of the II INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM OF KNOWLEDGE PSYCHOLOGY is based on two basic aspects from the relationship between inclusive education and citizenship. The first aspect considers that inclusive education implies the internal connection between the moral notion of human dignity and the legal conception of human rights. The second aspect considers it desirable that such connection is translated into school practices for the promotion of human psychological development in inclusive communities.

The purpose of this event thus reflects the two major consensual topics addressed in world discussions and publications: 1. The idea of ​​diversity in human psychological development as opposed to the conception of inability or difficulty. 2. The concept of academic legitimacy based on the development of educational diversity that consider the psychological diversity of individual characteristics. These questions denote the challenge of this event: finding ways to transform education systems and school practices of the institutional conjuncture and, in particular, mathematics education, so that human diversity is considered taking into account the links between theoretical and conceptual contributions, research and professional practices.
