The Nordic Education Model (NordEd) research project chaired by professor Inga Bostad are excited to share our new volume which is now available as open-access.

Tracing historical and cultural factors which gave rise to the Nordic Education Model, this volume explores why Northern European education policy has become an international benchmark for schooling.

The book will be of great interest to researchers, scholars, and postgraduates working across the fields of curriculum, comparative education, cultural studies and history and philosophy of education and education policy.

The book includes 17 chapters, 8 of which written by scholars at the Department of Education. 

The volume is edited by professor Daniel Tröhler, postdoctoral researcher Bernadette Hörmann, postdoctoral researcher Sverre Tveit and professor Inga Bostad.
