The Education Systems of Europe – an Object of Comparative Educational Research?
Keywords: Comparative education, European education, educational systems, research methodology
For a long time Wolfgang Mitter was the co-editor of the handbook Die Bildungssysteme
Europas/The Education Systems of Europe. Besides his formal co-editorship Wolfgang
Mitter took actively part in the discussions about the conception of the book. One of the
remaining methodological issues in these discussions has been: Is it possible and does it
make sense to develop comparisons stricto sensu by analysing a series of education
systems (area studies) of different countries? Can it create scientifically founded
knowledge, which is more than a description? The paper refers to the discussions among
the editors about this topic.
