The Symposium brought together current and former fellows of the presitigous Thomas J. Alexander Fellowship as well as policy-makers, policy advisers and representatives from the individual OECD member countries. In his presentation, Busemeyer introduced the core ideas of the chapter on education as well as the general framework of the IPSP project, highlighting the critical role that education (as well as evidence-based reseach on education) plays in promoting social progress and equality.
