Education in a single Europe (2.ª ed.). London: Routledge.


This book brings together contributors from the fifteen member states of the European Union in order to understand the different degrees of commitment to the concept of Europe and the role education plays in such a process. This second edition includes the new countries which have become part of the Union and also considers recent developments in policy and practice. The introduction considers the main issues involved in education across contemporary Europe, while subsequent chapters provide individual case studies for nations. The countries covered are: Austria; Belgium; Denmark; Finland; France; Germany; Greece; Ireland; Italy; Luxembourg; The Netherlands; Portugal; Spain; Sweden and the United Kingdom. All sectors of education are dealt with in each case and the central theme of the European dimension is examined throughout. Contributors also explore any matters of special relevance within their particular countries. Europe as a concept emerges as very much in development, with the European identity being reinforced throughout the various education systems and supported by the success of link schemes. The material presented here will make a significant contribution to the literature in this field of research and study.

No capítulo disponibilizado (Introdução), os autores fazem uma retrospectiva de como a Educação se foi tornando, a par da economia e da política internacional, um factor de coesão das nações da UE.
