The European dimensions of education constitute a field of growing distinctiveness and importance, with a speed, scale and complexity, reflecting the rise of international and transnational policies, and flows of data and public and private experts around Europe.
The European Policy Space for Education describes the emergence of a dense web of relations, data and people. Its speed and scale has been transformed by the push for a competitive Europe through the Lisbon Process, and by using a common set of benchmarks and networks, to governing Europe education through comparison.
The Series intends to create a space for scholars of European education policies and politics, in education studies, political science, sociology and European integration studies, and to develop interpretive studies about new European institutions, and the interplay between policy-makers, stakeholders and experts. The Series encourages research on education and its links with mobility, migration, finance, standardization and norms, knowledge and governing, and new technologies and software.
