22-25 August, Copenhaguen- The European Conference on Educational Research (ECER)

NORRAG will be presenting at The European Conference on Educational Research (ECER) on 22-25 August which will focus on the theme of “Reforming Education and the Imperative of Constant Change”.

The ECER 2017 invites scholars to reflect on the role of educational research in reforming education and the imperative of constant change. The prevalence of the Knowledge Economy discourse has pushed education higher up the government agenda, and, consequently, this policy area has become increasingly important to govern. But do current attempts to standardise education systems, programmes and curricula actually contribute uniformity? Or do national and local translations of the new education standards disrupt attempts to standardise? ECER 2017 addresses the impact of this transnational reform pressure by focusing on the ways in which reforms are affected by the roads they travel when they move across borders throughout Europe and beyond.

Patrick Montjouridès, Senior Research Associate, NORRAG will be presenting his study which identifies recent trends in access to post-secondary education and government expenditure across countries and regions worldwide. It also examines gender and wealth-related inequality both within and between countries.
