Abstract


Introduction

A special issue of Concept in December 2018 celebrated the 50th anniversary of the publication of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and many contributors reflected upon the way his work retains relevance. This article echoes those sentiments by describing how his work continues to offer inspiration and hope for radical community development, particularly in today’s world which has seen marginalised populations 'pulverised beyond the ambit of established instruments of collective voice' (Wacquant, 2008).
