23 SES 10 C, Constructing And Diffusing Knowledge For European Education Policy
To an even higher degree than most national governments the political and administrative institutions of the European Union emphasize that educational policy should be based on research evidence. For this purpose the EU institutions commissions applied educational research but not least surveys and summarizes existing research. The yearly reports on progress towards the Lisbon targets in education and training illustrate this. The question is, however, how research evidence is conceptualised, selected and used by the EU policymakers and officials. The paper will discuss this question, drawing on insights from the work of the NESSE network and other sources and placing them in the context of the general debate on evidence-based research and practise in education. Some key issues will be the risk of avoiding crucial paradigmatic differences in the deceptively neutral concept of "evidence", the risk of identifying evidence with statistics and the tension between local and national policy contexts and generalisation of research results. The paper will be based on studies of recent European Commission policy papers and reports on education.
