Abstract [en]

The nature of European education systems and their respective modes of governing education were principally determined by factors internal to individual countries until the early 1980s. After the extension of the European Union and the acceleration of globalization, European countries have adopted some features that exist in many countries around the world and that are proposed by the European Union (EU) and other international and supranational bodies. The EU has added a social dimension to the predominantly neoliberal world agenda, and the Europeanizing agenda is disseminated through the Open Method of Coordination, among other measures and channels. However, due to cultural, religious, political, and other national and local patterns, there are still a number of differences among the education systems of Europe. This article reviews the changes in the education sector, especially in governing/governance, during the past two decades in some twenty European countries and then focuses on seven country cases: the Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden.
