Theme 1 – Governance, politics and marketization changes in the Nordic understanding of justice through education

Principles related to justice – such as equality and universality – have historically played a strong role in educational policies in the Nordic countries, but is their importance decreasing in favor of more emphasis on comparison, marketization, effectiveness, and individualization? This is the common starting point for the research carried out in the two teams under theme 1.
