This book draws theoretically and methodologically from the sociology of curriculum, educational policy, and comparative education to meta-analyse the findings of nine separate studies which explored constructions of „Europe“ in the Social Studies secondary school curricula of a respective number of countries: Baden-Wurttemberg (Germany), Greece, France, Poland, Cyprus, Northern Ireland (UK), Sweden, Ireland and the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country (Spain).

The objectives of the book are threefold: firstly, to explore constructions of „Europe“ and „European identity-citizenship“ in these countries‘ curricula; secondly, to explore whether, and, if so, how these findings indicate a „Europeanisation“ of national curricula; and thirdly, to discuss the similarities, differences, continuities, discontinuities and tensions identified when comparing these curricula.
