Strengthening Social and Emotional Education as a Core Curriculum Area across the EU is the title of a recently-published EU-commissioned research report on the integration of social and emotional education in the school curriculum across the EU.

The report includes a meta-analysis of the most recent reviews of studies on the effectiveness of social and emotional education and proposes a multi-level framework on how social and emotional education may be implemented in schools as a whole school approach. It concludes with a set of recommendations for policy-makers and school leaders on how schools may strengthen the integration of social and emotional education as a core component of curricula across the EU.

Prof. Carmel Cefai is the leading author of the report, which was co-authored with Paul Bartolo, Valeria Cavioni and Paul Downes. It was published by the Network of Experts on Social Aspects of Education and Training (NESET II) at the European Commission. Prof. Cefai is a member of the network and the coordinating team.

The report was cited in the recent European Commission proposal for a Council Recommendation on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning.
