This doctoral thesis starts analyzing the pedagogical meaning of the concept of convivencia escolar , using as a base the theoretical frame that the field of contemporary pedagogy provides (Chapter 1). We ascertain the fact that it is a broad question that cannot be focused from unilateral perspectives that are centred in only one analytical element; rather, it is more a nodal concept where many elements appear to be involved, such as the concepts of diversity, rights and responsibilities, citizenship, participation, conflict, democracy... After this, we enter a complementary dimension, as we deal with the question of how laws and the legal frame can facilitate the achievement of an education in service of a democratic society (Chapter II). We are convinced of the synergy of both approaches: on the one hand, a thoughtful reflection oriented from the current pedagogical codes is necessary, but on the other hand, an analysis of how these ideas have affected our current legal frame is not less necessary. Then, we set forth a broad spectrum of plans, programs and projects that facilitate learning to live together (Chapter III) and we focus on the study of a series of initiatives that have been developed in Valencia (Chapter IV). Finally, we propose a protocol that may serve to make it easier for the schools to design their own plans of "convivencia", according to the legislative needs that our legal frame demands (Chapter V). In this fashion, the global study that we have developed in theory is transformed into a practical tool and, particularly, theory is thus directed towards our current reality.
