Nordic Centre of Excellence: Justice through education in the Nordic countries (JustEd)
The centre’s three thematic areas address this question from different angles:
- Governance and the impact of marketisation and how these influence the understanding of justice in education.
- Teaching and learning practices and how they are influenced by politics and policies in terms of justice.
- Agency, marginalisation and diversity. The spread of neo-liberalism represents a challenge for Nordic educational ideologies based on equality, equity and inclusion.
The centre will use multilevel, comparative, cross-cultural and cross-border research, to examine educational policies and practices in a critical light, and to explore the role of governance and the agency of teachers and students in terms of equity and equality.
Participating countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, USA, Italy, Australia and France.
