Research Network - Transnationalisation and Education

Educational realities are increasingly determined by a growing complexity of local, regional, national and global references. For analysing these new realities, there is a need for suitable theoretical and methodological analytical tools. The research network aims at contributing to the development of research instruments for analysing transnational phenomena in several educational segments.
Taking a critical perspective on the paradigm of methodological nationalism, the network focuses on transnationalisation and education in different contexts in various settings in the world. Attention is given to (global) citizenship education and to how it is appropriated by educational actors, in policies and practices in different parts of the education system. Thus, the network also directs its focus to the tension in the discourses on mobility and migration and their implications in the scientific debate.
