Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, Lower Level Conference Room, Busch Hall. 27 Kirkland Street, Cambridge.

José Manuel Martínez Sierra, Jean Monnet ad personam in European Union Law and Government and RCC Director, is pleased to present this panel featuring:

  • Paul Reville, Francis Keppel Professor of Practice of Educational Policy and Administration at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
  • Rocío Albert, General Director of Universities and Research in the region of Madrid.
  • José Antonio Marco, RCC Fellow and Partner at Magnum Capital.
  • José Manuel Martínez Sierra, Jean Monnet Professor in European Union Law and Government, Former President of the European Union High Level Group on Education and Training Policies.

The EU's growth strategy for the coming decade (Europe 2020) includes education as one of the top five objectives for the decade. At the same time, the Lisbon Treaty did not empower EU in the educational field. This has established intergovernmental decision-making processes as the only way to build European education. This panel will analyze the consequences of this distribution of power in the EU’s educational policy outcomes. It will do so by comparing the European scenario with the US approach to the decision making process and distribution of power in educational policy.
