This book is based on an original and sustained analysis of European Commission policy texts related to the European Social Fund (ESF) and its broader educational, socio-economic and political context. The work is based on a rigorous library and internet search covering 1957 to 2000. The critical discursive analysis provides a theorization of the significance of vocational education and training policy within the wider socio-economic and political construction of the European Union, in particular the policy-making and implementing relationship between the Commission and the Member State.
