Education, the production of knowledge, and progress in context of the global public goods debate

The objective of this paper is to explore the nexus that links education, the production of knowledge and the prospect of socio-economic growth and development seen as a measure of progress. The argument is placed against the backdrop of the global public goods debate. The role of the state and in particular of the European Union policies in boosting education across Europe and beyond is emphasized. The challenges, opportunities and contentious issues relevant to the processes of education, knowledge production, and their impact on public policy are emphasized.
