Abstract: EU society and schools are both currently facing two major policy dilemmas regarding threats to social exclusion: (1) how to promote competitiveness while ensuring social cohesion (here focusing on solidarity as the attempt to reduce social inequalities); and (2) how to enhance integration while respecting the entitlement for inclusion of diverse individuals and groups. These are genuine and complex dilemmas in constant tension that have no final solution, but call for a continuous resolution of the balance between the two conflicting processes of each dilemma (Clark et al., 1999; cf. Eurydice, 1994).
