Education & Society (InES)

The Institute of Education and Society employs a multidisciplinary perspective on education including sociology and educational sciences, theory and history of education, comparative education, inclusive education, (political) economy, and cultural studies.

Our research focuses on education processes and education systems in its cultural, political, and economic contexts from cross-national and/or comparative perspectives, emphasising historical and spatial comparisons.

Multiple levels of analysis in current research include the macro level of educational policy and the emergence or development of school systems and of other educational structures, the meso level (institutions), and the micro level of child rearing, education, teaching and learning, as well as these levels mutually affect each other.
