Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The present work corresponds to the report of an investigation leading to the obtainment of a Doctorate degree in Educational Sciences, an area of deepening in Social Pedagogy being entitled as “Hospitality and Organizational Pedagogical Leadership – a challenge for social and educational institutions”. From a theoretical point of view, the study fits into Social Pedagogy, recognized as a science of education related to the processes of education and training throughout life, assuming in this case a socio-anthropological vision of education where hospitality is presented as a relational category, which gives organizational pedagogical leadership new values and principles. From an empirical point of view, we opted to embrace a study framed by the interpretive paradigm, based on the use of documentary research and the questioning of actors, carried out through semi-structured interviews. In essence, and as shown above, the data collected and analyzed allowed to substantiate the importance of hospitality as a value of human relationship and, to that extent, as a principle of organizational pedagogical leadership, thus suggesting the need for training of actors, namely in the context of social and educational institutions.
