Aims and Scope: European Journal for Education Law and Policy
Education and education law have traditionally been matters of national interest. However, during the last decade the increasing mobility of students and staff has given rise to a growing interest in the education systems of other countries. At the same time, education systems throughout Europe (and elsewhere) have been confronted with major problems, such as the integration of minorities into the education system, budget cuts and so on. In line with the European Union's aim to develop a European Education Policy, those confronted with such problems are increasingly looking to other education systems for solutions. There is therefore a growing need for information and debate on such issues, which the European Journal for Education Law and Policy seeks to address.
The European Journal for Education Law and Policy, which is the official Journal of `The European Association for Education Law and Policy', is designed to exchange information on education systems and national education law, to present views on education law and policy, and to interpret and comment on the education policy of the European Union. Each issue contains 12 country reports, covering the latest developments in the field of education law. Also included are articles of a comparative nature by leading experts in the field, and book reviews.
The European Journal for Education Law and Policy will meet the needs of both academics and practitioners dealing with education issues. It will focus primarily, but not exclusively, on European Union Member States.
