Introduction: Ethnography of Education in a European Educational Researcher Perspective

D Beach, F Gobbo, B. Jeffrey, Geraldine Smyth, G Troman

Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


Collectively, the articles suggested for this special issue demonstrate that there are many perspectives that could be considered in the process of policy change, innovation or in the day-to-day processes of educational life, and that ethnography with its attempts to encompass as many perspectives as possible plays an important role in identifying the complexities of life. In particular it is a methodology that can be used in different cultural contexts and has the potential, therefore, to increase pan-European research relations and an even greater potential to be the basis for international joint projects.
