Description of work

The objective of this workpackage is to use the method of learning histories for reflection and seeking opportunities for transnational learning. For making sense of transnational learning the project will be based on the nationally and cross-nationally specific cases. This means that actors being studied, policy-makers, and scholars from Europe as well as the United States will be involved. Learning arenas are large group intervention processes where the specific cases will be presented. These will in turn be subject to expert interpretation, and cross-national scientific dialogues. At the same time this is an attempt to conduct action research on the research topics.
