Lifelong learning and the counter/professionalisation of childcare: a case study of local hybridizations of global European discourses

Michel Vandenbroeck UGent, Jan Peeters UGent and Maria De Bie UGent (2013) EUROPEAN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION RESEARCH JOURNAL. 21(1). p.109-124
abstract
We provide a historical (genealogical) study of the changes in discourses on adult education since the famous UNESCO conference in Montreal, to present day texts of the European Union on lifelong learning. We also analyse how these changing global discourses on lifelong learning have travelled through the hegemony of English language to local situations, such as in Flanders. In the case of Flanders, they have paradoxically contributed to a significant counter-professionalisation of the early years workforce. This genealogical case study also shows how research, policy and practice are closely intertwined in their contribution to this paradox. The study shows that genealogical approaches are useful to show both how international influences need to be considered in a globalised world, but also how specific local hybridisations' of these discourses are constructed.
