This chapter explains the importance of education as an arena in which the politics play out. It then moves to a presentation of two cases in Scotland and canton Zurich and considers their implications for re-imagining Europe and its Union. The chapter considers the education politics of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in government. It discusses the educational integration policy discourses in the case of canton Zurich. The chapter reveals the discursive practices of actors in Scotland and canton Zurich when building national identity projects and in the area of education policy. Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) has become one of the key international comparative measures of the effectiveness of schooling systems, and its data sets are heavily used by the European Union (EU) and its member states. The territorial-sovereignty approach foregrounds the potential for re-shaping the existing logics of action within domestic systems.
