eucen Position Papers are essays generally prepared by the Steering Committee of the Association, that present eucen‘s opinion about an issue or topic on behalf of the eucen community. Members are consulted through questionnaires, during projects, at parallel sessions or in General Assemblies, so the Steering Committee has a feeling of eucen members’ opinion. There is no schedule for publication of position papers. These are published when it is considered a topic or issue could benefit from eucen‘s view.
eucen is often invited to contribute in stakeholders’ publications, such as UNESCO Institute for LLL or DGWF, in the form of articles or chapters for books.
eucen produces contributions to the current education debates in the form of policy papers and/or recommendations. These documents are results from projects coordinated by eucen, always shared with European policy makers and stakeholders. Some have made a real impact to ULLL in Europe.
