The Conference in Copenhagen represented a further confirmation for the Network. The project of starting a network with clear foci of research interest, and of establishing a meeting point for encounters among sociologies of education was realized. The network offers now high quality selection of paper contribution as well as good quality of discussion and confrontation among peers. The Network decided to launch a call for paper ‘In the Shadow of Europeanization of Education’ that permitted to organize many sessions.

Each network holds a Network Meeting during ECER and invites interested researchers to join. We have collected the network meeting minutes.
