    On the (in)Tolerance of Hate Speech: Does It Have Legitimacy in a Democracy?Nuraan Davids - 2018 - Ethics and Education 13 (3):296-308.
    In May 2017, yet another South African university became a site of hate speech. Three students chose to display Nazi-inspired posters, which advertised an ‘Anglo-Afrikaner student’ event, under the motto ‘Fight for Stellenbosch’. That the posters provoked the response which it so obviously sought, was evident in the student outrage, and the swift condemnation from university management. Neither the prevalence of hate speech, nor its predictable responses, is new. The central concern of this article is to consider the extent to (...)

    Deliberation, Belonging and Inclusion: Towards Ethical Teaching in a Democratic South Africa.Nuraan Davids - 2016 - Ethics and Education 11 (3):274-285.
    The teaching profession in South Africa, like elsewhere in the world, is regulated by the specific codes of conduct, as stipulated by the South African Council for Educators. While common criticisms against SACE include failing to ensure the registration of all teachers, and not adequately dealing with the unprofessional conduct of teachers, it is the question of whether SACE can act as an ethical regulator, which attracts the most attention. Seemingly, there exists a tension between the legalistic approach to ethical (...)

    Muslim Women and the Politics of Religious Identity in a (Post) Secular Society.Nuraan Davids - 2014 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 33 (3):303-313.
    Women’s bodies, states Benhabib (Dignity in adversity: human rights in troubled times, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2011: 168), have become the site of symbolic confrontations between a re-essentialized understanding of religious and cultural differences and the forces of state power, whether in their civic-republican, liberal-democratic or multicultural form. One of the main reasons for the emergence of these confrontations or public debates, says Benhabib (2011: 169), is because of the actual location of ‘political theology’. She asserts that within the context (...)

    Islamic Education, Possibilities, Opportunities and Tensions: Introduction to the Special Issue.Yusef Waghid & Nuraan Davids - 2014 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 33 (3):227-231.
    If Islam continues to evoke skepticism, as it has done most intensely since 9/11, then it stands to reason that its tenets and education are viewed with equal mistrust, and as will be highlighted in this special issue, equal misunderstanding. The intention of this special edition is neither to counter the accusations Islam stands accused of, nor to offer solutions to the myriad challenges facing Muslims in majority and minority Muslim countries. As will be evidenced in the diverse offering of (...)

    On the Un-Becoming of Measurement in Education.Nuraan Davids - 2017 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 49 (4).
    Education in democratic South Africa has been saddled with the extraordinary task of sanitising a once dehumanising and splintered education system into a singular narrative of social justice and creative, problem-solving individuals. This extraordinary effort has witnessed a pendulum swing from the openness of outcomes-based education, to a less flexible National Curriculum Statement, and recently, to what has been criticised as a too restrictive Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement. In its narrow focus on ‘assessment for learning’, CAPS appears to be trapped (...)

    Philosophy for Teachers (P4T) in South Africa – Re-Imagining Provision to Support New Teachers’ Applied Ethical Decision-Making.Nuraan Davids & Janet L. Orchard - 2019 - Ethics and Education 14 (3):333-350.
    ABSTRACTConventional teacher education programmes do not equip practitioners adequately to navigate ethically complex situations that arise in teaching. One initiative responding to this deficit is ‘Philosophy for Teachers’, a 24-hour residential approach to community philosophy. Piloted originally in England, a further workshop took place in South Africa in October 2017, comprising student teachers, teacher educators and philosophers from three historically different universities in the Western Cape. Significant new insights to emerge included greater clarity on the respective contributions of P4T and (...)

  11. Universities, Pedagogical Encounters, Openness, and Free Speech: Reconfiguring Democratic Education.Nuraan Davids & Yusef Waghid - 2019 - Lexington Books.
    This book explores the complicated question of the regulating of speech at universities in South Africa. The authors discuss whether the potential harm of hate speech is sufficient justification for limiting free speech—and how doing so may affect the democratic project.

    Maximalist Islamic Education as a Response to Terror: Some Thoughts on Unconditional Action.Yusef Waghid & Nuraan Davids - 2015 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 47 (13-14):1477-1492.
    Inasmuch as Muslim governments all over the world dissociate themselves from despicable acts of terror, few can deny the brutality and violence perpetrated especially by those in authoritative positions like political governments against humanity. Poignant examples are the ongoing massacre of Muslim communities in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan by those government or rebel forces intent on eliminating the other whom they happen to find unworthy of living. This article attempts to map Islamic education’s response to violence and terror often (...)

    On the (Im)Possibility of Democratic Citizenship Education in the Arab and Muslim World.Yusef Waghid & Nuraan Davids - 2014 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 33 (3):343-351.
    The euphoria of the recent Arab Spring that was initiated in northern African countries such as Tunisia, Egypt and Libya and spilled over to Bahrain, Yemen and Syria brings into question as to whether democratic citizenship education or more pertinently, education for democratic citizenship can successfully be cultivated in most of the Arab and Muslim world. In reference to the Gulf Cooperation Council countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates) in the Middle East, we argue (...)
