Στο περιοδικό: Συγκριτική και Διεθνής Εκπαιδευτική Επιθεώρηση (Comparative and International Education Review) ISSN 11098678 The argument of this article is that the shift from “equality of educational opportunities” to “quality” in higher education in Europe has been expressed through the emphasis in economic efficiency/effectiveness and universi...
Chapter
Η ευρωπαϊκή πολιτική για τη διά βίου μάθηση εισήγαγε το Ευρωπαϊκό Πλαίσιο Προσόντων [European Qualifications Framework (EQF)], το οποίο επικεντρώθηκε στα μαθησιακά αποτελέσματα και συνδέθηκε με την προώθηση της επαγγελματικής εκπαίδευσης και κατάρτισης στο πλαίσιο της παγκοσμιοποίησης. Η δημόσια συζήτηση ότι το EQF θα έδινε στα άτομα περισσότερες ε...
Article
Comparative education was established in Greek universities in the 1980s, with the creation of pedagogical departments and two laboratories, and the publication of a journal. There was an early emphasis on education policy analysis, in terms of assumptions about the ‘semi-peripherality’ of Greece within Europe. Later, the emphasis shifted to what w...
Chapter
Στο κείμενο αυτό, θα υποστηριχθεί ότι στις πολιτικές για την τριτοβάθμια εκπαίδευση στην Ελλάδα, το αίτημα για «ισότητα εκπαιδευτικών ευκαιριών» είχε κυριαρχήσει τις δεκαετίες του 1980 και του 1990, με τη μαζικοποίηση του συστήματος. Ωστόσο, από τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του 2000, το ενδιαφέρον της Πολιτείας για την ισότητα άρχισε να υποχωρεί και να δί...
Article
This article argues that adult education/lifelong learning policies in Greece, as these are expressed by law 3879/2010 "Development of Lifelong Learning and Other Provisions," have the characteristics of the "statist" model of lifelong learning in Europe, namely strong governmental control and centralization. However, there are also characteristics...
Article
In: Adult Education: A Journal of the Hellenic Adult Education Association Το επιχείρημα του άρθρου είναι ότι οι πολιτικές για την εκπαίδευση ενηλίκων / διά βίου μάθηση στην Ελλάδα (τις οποίες εκφράζει ο νόμος 3879/2010 "Ανάπτυξη της διά βίου μάθησης και λοιπές διατάξεις") παρουσιάζουν τα χαρακτηριστικά του "κρατικιστικού" μοντέλου διά βίου μάθησης...
Article
Full-text available
Περίληψη The argument of this article is that during the last two decades or so, in lifelong learning policies in Greece, priority was given to the confrontation of social exclusion that stems from unemployment and, thus, to the achievement of the aims of employability and social inclusion. EU funding and the relatively centralised character of th...
Chapter
The aim of this chapter is to analyse and interpret recent higher education policies – with special reference to the introduction of an evaluation and quality assurance framework – in Greece, against developments in higher education in the European space, as well as against the Greek university tradition.
Article
This article argues that in today's knowledge societies, European universities are called upon to make students more employable, by cultivating their skills and by encouraging them to lifelong learning for enhancing their flexibility in the labour market. Employability is emphatically stressed and, to a certain extent, is associated with equity con...

Στο περιοδικό Συγκριτική και Διεθνής Εκπαιδευτική Επιθεώρηση (Comparative and International Education Review) ISSN 11098678 Τhis article argues that the historical persistence of European universities has been the result of a well-balanced combination of the intrinsic and the extrinsic qualities. However, until the 1980s, the intrinsic values were...
Article
This article argues that, despite globalisation forces, national education and training systems have kept their particularities. Policies of convergence, enhanced by supranational organisations such as the European Commission, have not yet led to a homogenisation of national education and training systems. The latter are still influenced by the pol...

In: Κοινωνική Συνοχή και Ανάπτυξη (Social Cohesion and Development) ISSN 1790-9368 Από τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ’90, στις πολιτικές για τη διά βίου εκπαίδευση στην Ελλάδα κυριάρχησε η «κυβερνητική στρατηγική». Για τη διαμόρφωση της κοινωνίας της μάθησης, επεκτάθηκε το σύστημα της διά βίου εκπαίδευσης, ενώ ταυτόχρονα σε μεγάλο βαθμό ιδιωτικοποιήθ...
Article
This article argues that in the 1960s-1970s, two international organisations, namely OECD and the World Bank, influenced educational policy in Greece: higher technical education was expected to contribute to economic development and modernisation. This process took place within the framework of the 'semi-peripherality' of Greece during that period:...
