In this paper I intend to place the issue of rights and justice in another way of understanding the democracy that is more deliberative and communicative. In this sense, I propose the understanding of democracy as human rights and I wonder the specificity and aim of politicity and dialogicity vectors that should characterize this type of democracy. I conclude this article by explaining the implications of this conception of democracy in education, stressing in particular the requirements of a democratic education, open to the challenges of participation and of cosmopoliticity, to the requirements of different scales of justice.
