1 Elements of a Europeanisation of Education ICCS / IV Conference Prague, 29 June 2011 Peter Schreiner

2 Peter Schreiner IV / ICCS 2011page 2 Europeanisation Entry-point for greater understanding of important changes occurring in politics and society (Featherstone 2003 ) Creating a European Education Space & European Education Policy ( Dale 2009) »Europe does not exist. There is only Europeanisation« (Beck & Grande 2004 ) Two dimensions of Europeanisation a vertical process between national societies and European institutions a horizontal process in creating a social space of Europe in relation to European civil societies

3 Peter Schreiner IV / ICCS 2011page 3 Education in the »knowledge society« »Education is seen as a key instrument for economic growth and knowledge is a new form of capital. Generally this results in a view of education where questions of identity, culture, morality, religion and society are at best seen as instrumental to the development of individual competences that will create flexible labour.« (Afdal 2010)

4 Peter Schreiner IV / ICCS 2011page 4 »Knowledge economy« »The knowledge economy is a much used term in relation to contemporary education policy but as a concept it is elusive and misleading. It derives from the idea that knowledge and education can be treated as a business product, and that educational and intellectual products and services, as productive assets, can be exported for a high-value return.« (Ball 2008)
