Emancipatory education is presented as an educational methodology that promotes the empowerment of students to achieve concrete learning goals. In this context, this paper presents a detailed literature review on the subject, to know the characteristics and global trends in emancipatory education. For this, the PRISMA methodology of the bibliographic review was used, and published works from the years 2023 and 2024 were selected, in Scopus databases. The main findings reveal that the topic of the study had a great emphasis in 2023 and that the main countries conducting research in this area are the United States and Brazil. This indicates that emancipatory education continues to be an issue of great international importance and therefore, it is necessary to develop a Latin American initiative.
