Europe and Education

London Review of Education special feature


As the UK transitions to a new political and diplomatic relationship with the European Union, it is timely to reflect on, celebrate and critically appraise ways in which education has evolved in the UK and in mainland Europe in response to opportunities offered by European co-operation. The papers here are linked by a broadly European perspective, focussing on both the European Union and the Council of Europe (of which the UK remains a member state). They remind us of European institutional commitments to social justice, to human rights and to combatting discrimination. They provide research-based case studies of how this commitment is being enacted, or in some cases compromised.
