The 4th ICPC 2012 continues the commitment of the previous three international conferences (San Juan, Puerto Rico, 2006, Lisbon, 2008, Puebla, Mexico, 2010) to forge agendas and shared and effective responses to the problems and social aspirations of the new century from an approach that promotes human development through social participation and synergistic action, transcending the diversity and plurality of positions, in order to enable collaboration to face current challenges.
At this conference we propose, as a specific focus of discussion and reflection, the possibilities and conditions of empowerment in the context of the psychological crisis, social crisis and the social exclusion presented in various national and local realities.
Other themes of interest:
- Community development and empowerment.
- Diversity theoretical, methodological and evaluative research and community action.

- Community and sense of community.
- Ethical and value aspects of action and community role.
- Community and community action at the crossroads of the local and global.
- Community social implications of “new technologies” and educational software.
- Visible and invisible violence.
The conference program will be updated progressively.
