Troelsen, Rie; Laursen, Per F. – European Journal of Education, 2014
National cultures are known to influence educational institutions and practices in many ways.

Karila, Kirsti – European Journal of Education, 2012
The national policies and historical roots of early childhood education (ECE) vary from society to society. In the Nordic countries, early childhood education and care (ECEC) policies have been built in the context of the welfare state. As such, they are closely connected to other welfare policy areas such as social policy, family policy and…
