A journal’s foundation is always a significant happening for the academic community; and the existence of a journal finds its legitimation in the process that brought to its foundation. The project of the journal, Italian Sociology of Education (ISE), is deeply rooted in the long-standing scientific activity of the Education Section (created in 1990) of the Italian Sociological Association (AIS, founded in 1983).
The ISE responds to a need that has been widely recognised within the Section: creating an international space where the work of the Italian scholars in the field of education could meet and interact with those of their international colleagues. The choice of English as the language of the Journal aims on the one hand to give more opportunities to Italian sociologists of education to be known within the international community. On the other hand, its purpose is to establish a closer and more intense dialogue with colleagues from all over Europe.
