This chapter focuses on policy learning, one specific aspect of the governance process that contributes to the building of a European Social Model (ESM). It starts from the assumption that if we want to understand what forms of solidarity develop in the EU it is important, first of all, to understand the governance processes through which a social dimension of the EU is established. The chapter traces how the construction of discourses about policy learning within institutional frameworks comes to govern education in the EU. It argues, firstly, that policy learning contributes to EU governance in education through four distinct policy learning styles: mutual, competitive, surface, and imperialistic learning. Secondly, it suggests that policy learning contributes to governance because it is not a separate and discrete strategy but is embedded in already established governance regimes, such as the use of expert knowledge.
