Prof Stephen Ball profile picture
  • Emeritus Professor of Sociology of Education
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society
  • UCL Institute of Education

My main areas of interest are in education policy analysis and social theory. 1 - Changes in governance and new state modalities. 2 - The Global Education Reform Movement. 3 - The relationships between education and education policy and social class. I bring to bear on these issues the tools and concepts of "policy sociology" and in particular the methods of Michael Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu. In 2008, I was involved in launching the BERA Social Theory and Education SIG.
