The programme places a critical focus on current education policies and reforms that raise questions about justice and social inequality in the education system. It brings together people from different research environments across sections and institutions, including university colleges and vocational colleges. We collaborate on developing and ensuring the quality of activities such as publications, development, and applications within research. The group has a high level of activity, with monthly meetings where we present, spar, and comment on each other’s written research work with a focus on issues of a methodological, theoretical, and analytical nature.

The common professional interest is changed structures and empirical observations in a number of educational areas, including:

Increased privatisation and changed subsidies in the primary school area
Self-ownership and new distribution structures in the upper secondary education area
Changed structures and social inequality factors in upper secondary educations
Adults’ opportunities and changed structures within continuing and further education
Transitions and admission requirements for higher education programmes
Pattern-breaking efforts on the higher education programmes
The individual’s choice and non-choice in higher education programmes
Phasing out of adult education opportunities in the provinces (e.g., the closure of adult education centres)

Overall, we work with research efforts in the following policy areas:

Social structures
Institutional structures
Assessment structures
Transitional structures
Governance structures

Research approaches

Structure–actor-oriented approaches; combination of methods – qualitative–quantitative: document studies, ethnography and registers/statistics; studies of processes at and connections between different levels, globally, internationally, nationally, and locally.
