My article in the journal of the Finnish Network for Language Education Policies

I happily received the invitation of the editors of Kieli, koulutus ja yhteiskunta (Language, Education and Society) to share my research experience in Finland. In the article that has just been published, I summarize how "moving to Finland two years ago had given new push to my work". In the lead paragraph of the article, I summarized the main changes in my work:
I have been studying Hungarian education for about thirteen years and I have been addressing the general public with popularizing materials for nearly five years now. However, in Finland these activities become more complex than in my native country. Here, I wish to discuss how my research found larger and larger contexts in two steps: first, by starting to make my research available to wider audiences in Hungary, and second, by turning my focus to an international environment. I claim that these two types of re-contextualization are not only beneficial for me as a researcher personally but also serve the researched communities as well as teachers and other practitioners in a rich way.
