The EU Education Policy in the Post-Lisbon Era

A Comprehensive Approach


Caroline U. Amann

This book provides a comprehensive view of the current state of affairs and possible developments in EU education law and policy. It covers the innovations brought about by the Lisbon Treaty as well as the Lisbon/EU 2020 Strategy and its implications for education and training and analyses the EU programme Erasmus+. Moreover, it takes a close look at the right to education as contained in the Charter of Fundamental Human Rights of the European Union and outlines the main trends in European Court of Justice case law. Finally, it focuses on cohesion policy measures and assesses the education initiatives undertaken by macro-regional strategies and the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino.

I would like to thank my supervisor Professor Peter Hilpold, who encouraged me to write this thesis. I am grateful that he allowed me to work independently while providing help and guidance whenever needed. I am thankful to Professor Karl Weber, my second supervisor. Further thanks go to the Vice-Rectorate for Research of Leopold-Franzens- Universität Innsbruck for granting me a thesis scholarship. I have been fortunate to have parents who have imparted to me the value of education. The choice of topic was therefore nothing out of the ordinary. With regard to this thesis, I appreciated above all their moral support. I especially wish to thank my sister Valerie for her invaluable advice on the English language and for proofreading the manuscript. Finally, I wish to thank my partner Emanuel for proofreading the manuscript and for his constant support. Caroline U. Amann Innsbruck, October 2014
