AIEJI is the International Association of Social Educators. Founded in the aftermath of World War II, it has since developed into an international organisation with members from all over the world working with socially exposed children and young people, people with developmental disabilities and excluded and marginalised adults such as the mentally ill, the homeless and drug addicts.

Every 4 years, AIEJI organizes an international congress for all its members and affiliated professionals, academics, practitioners and others. It is an opportunity to produce, gather and exchange knowledge. More information here:
