Identity, Education and Citizenship - Multiple Interrelations presents the outcomes of the 21st Conference of the Comparative Education Society in Europe (CESE), held in Copenhagen, in summer 2004. Bringing together studies related to educational policies, the volume deals with the fact that the stream of ideas, information, culture, and money across the national borders continues to increase and to influence all sectors of modern society. Among the sectors most powerfully affected are educational practices and educational institutions of all kinds. Consequently, national educational policies must be examined and reviewed. The book tries to broaden the scope of existing Comparative Education literature and demonstrates the advantages of employing a comparative approach to current trends in society and education.
