Abstract: With its focus on relational dynamics the Comparative Analytics of Dynamics in Education Politics (CADEP) will seriously take up the challenge of unravelling the complexity, contingency and trans-nationality that characterise educational systems of late-modern societies. Applying the theoretical concept of dynamics we aim to resuscitate a specific social field of education to scrutiny through the analysis of relations between the main actors and institutions, and the essential discursive formations and practices along the dimensions of time (historical continuation), space (local, national, regional and global) and level (micro/actors, meso/institutions and macro/structures). The main idea is that the fluidity and movement of a specific policy field of basic education are relative, but reflect the intertwinement of the dynamics from at least four focal perspectives: education policy-making, education governance, family educational strategies and classroom cultures. We present some results on each perspective drawing on the Finnish case.
