Reform of the state and educational policies: "in between" the crisis of the nation-state and the emergence of the supranational regulation

The text starts with a few previous observations that help the reader to position the author as far as the analysed thematic is concerned. Then, having a sociology of education policy as a reference, the author tries to situate the crisis of the Nation-State and its implications in order to look into some of the dimensions of education. At last, he makes an outline of the reform of the State, which is mainly based on the restraints deriving from the new supranational regulation instances/agencies.
