Centre for Education policy research (CFU)

Mission and Professional Profile

The Centre for Education Policy Research conducts research into education and education politics and how policies are transformed and implemented in governance, in the curriculum, in teaching and instruction, in pedagogies and in forms of evaluation in regional, national and transnational contexts. Emphasizing interdisciplinarity and comparative perspectives, we draw on approaches from sociology, history, ethnography, aesthetics, political science, cultural and critical race studies, and didactics and curriculum studies. The research centre is based in Aalborg and Copenhagen.

  • Equality, inequality and diversity
  • Governing, participation and autonomy
  • Periphery, polarization and social cohesion
  • Discipline, citizenship and creativity

Our mission is: 

  • To contribute to knowledge about production- and implementation processes within the field of education 

  • To strengthen the foundation of education and thus of teaching and instruction, pedagogy and evaluation through theoretically, empirically and critical-analytical research.
