This book provides an unconventional account of post-1989 education reform in Romania. By drawing on policy documentation, interviews with key players, qualitative data from everyday school contexts, and extensive textbook analysis, this groundbreaking study explores change within the Romanian education system as a process that institutionalises world culture through symbolic mediation of the concept ‘Europe’. The book argues that the education system’s structural and organisational evolution through time is decoupled from its self-depiction by ultimately serving a nation-building agenda. It does so despite notable changes in the discourse reflecting increasingly transnational definitions of the mission of the school in the post-1989 era. The book also suggests that the notions of ‘nation’ and ‘citizen’ institutionalised by the school are gradually being redefined as cosmopolitan, matching post-war patterns of post-national affiliations on a worldwide level.

Mary Jo Maynes looks to school reform in early modern Europe to show the relevance of early ideas about schooling for understanding contemporary society. She presents the competing perspectives on issues such as the identity and motivations of school reformers, the broad societal changes that made educational reform seem imperative toward the end of the eighteenth century all over the West, the connections between educational change and economic development, the role of schools in the evolution of class relations, the impact of reform on family strategies in the context of early industrialization. The work concludes by assessing historical data on the social impact of school reform and addressing the social meaning of schooling in the past and in the present.

Insights from eight grass-roots projects in Council of Europe member states to address the challenges of policies to counter-radicalisation in education. This report offers an assessment of the effects of counter-radicalisation policies in the education sector, through the empirical analysis of eight grass-roots projects located in schools across the member states of the Council of Europe (Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Norway and the United Kingdom). It provides a detailed insight into how such policies are experienced in practice. The report covers three main areas. First, it offers an analysis of the legislative and political context that led to the development of counter-radicalization policies, as well as their challenge. Second, based on qualitative interviews and focus groups with project leaders, students, teachers, educators and school managers, it provides a detailed account of the very heterogeneous type of practices encapsulated by the term counter-radicalisation. Finally, it shows that while some practices are in line with principles of human rights education and education for democratic citizenship, others risk undermining fundamental rights and the autonomy of education. The report concludes with some key recommendations to the Council of Europe on how to overcome these challenges.
