Kerstin Martens talks to Deutschlandfunk about the role of the EU in shaping Europe's education systems. The EU is a late starter in this field and its influence is mainly limited to vocational and university education. Actors such as the OECD have a much stronger influence on education systems. Martens and other colleagues from the SFB 1342 are currently hosting an international workshop in Bremen on the influence of such international organisations on social policy.
The interview with Kerstin Martens on EU education policy can be read and listened to on the Deutschlandfunk website.
During the two-day workshop "The Architecture of Arguments in Global Social Governance - Examining the Community and Discourses of International Organizations in Social Policies", Kerstin Martens and Dennis Niemann will present parts of their work on the role of international organisations in education policy. The title of their lecture is: Global Discourses, Regional Framings and Individual Showcasing: Analyzing the World of Education IOs.
