The programme covers a diverse range of studies, from fundamental interdisciplinary studies in the field of social sciences and the humanities to applied and empirical subjects. The primary group of topics concerns the development of fundamental disciplines such as philosophy, pedagogy, sociology, psychology, linguistics and anthropology, all with sub-disciplines and interdisciplinary cross-sections. Studies are conducted with interaction of the recapitulation of foreign concepts and the development of our own basic concepts within the framework of educational theory. They represent diachronic and synchronic analyses of basic concepts of the philosophy of education (paideia, humanitas, Bildung, éducation, doctrina, etc), as well as education and care (aims, values, means and goals, virtues, impartiality and equality in education, democratic nature of the educational system, school and human and children’s rights, autonomy, freedom and restraint, knowledge, learning, education and indoctrination, etc). Using methods of in-depth discourse analysis, double hermeneutics, generalisation of empirical insight, etc through critical examination of theoretical and ideological discourses in education, we gain a fundamental understanding of the operation of knowledge-generating systems, the conditions for their optimal functioning, and development perspectives, as well as their structural placement with regard to the determinants of social organisation, political culture and the politics of goal implementation in the global context. The second part of the programme focuses on the applied level, i.e. the development and application of research methodologies which ought to contribute to a precise insight into the ongoing processes, as well as to the formulation of goals of interventions concerning change. Starting from questions regarding the role of the family, and continuing with investigations in the field of pre-school and school education, revealing and analysing various factors of the quality of education, the longitudinal monitoring of factors over extended periods of time makes it possible to contribute to a higher quality education, to pluralisation on the level of programmes, organisational forms, contents and methods of work. The research results provide references for the educational policy for pulling those levers which ensure a high-quality level of occupation of teaching positions in schools, with adequately trained teaching staff. Global multinational research within the IEA association in longitudinal perspective provides valuable comparative findings on the operation of the educational system, which, among other things, represent the starting-point for the national evaluation of the quality of educational processes and for establishing problems and dilemmas in educational practice.
