Open Method of Coordination as a the established working method of governance in education.

2007. Vol. 2. No. 2. P. 6–12 [issue contents]

Though the Open Method of Coordination was established by the Lisbon European Council, the study demonstrates that diverse tools of coordination emerging and maturing as the EU education policy was unfolding include almost a full specter of the OMC features, this being one of the factors accounting for the current success of this new mode of governance as a working method in Education. The study explores other factors of success for OMC in Education and suggests that Education should be relegated to the first group of policy areas of Claudio M. Radaelli’s classification, “demonstrating a deliberate attempt to use OMC as the main working method on the basis of the Council Conclusions” and adopting national action plans, indicators and benchmarks, biennial reporting as instruments in the “Education and Training 2010” programme.

The analysis hypothesizes that EU education policy agenda will continue to deepen and expand remaining under the subsidiarity principle and makes a positivist proposition that the OMC tools in the area of Education policy have a high capacity for strengthening both the horizontal and hierarchical interaction and shaping convergence of decisions and actions within the next decade.
