Establishing a national research center on day care

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


The paper presents and discusses the current formation of a national research center on ECEC. The center is currently being established. It is partly funded by the Danish union of early childhood and youth educators. It is based on cooperation between a number of Danish universities and this national union.
The paper discusses some of the political issues that underpins the center and its research program. The center aims at putting teacher practices and participation in the forefront. In some ways, it marks the converging aims of practitioners and critical researchers especially against current new public management policies.
However there is also more conflicting issues that emerge in this enterprise – especially on interests, practice relevance and knowledge paradigms.
