Up to date, there has been no investigation of the impact of institutions in Lithuania which present research-based information to decision makers. The authors compares changes within educational policy implemented in 2018– 2020 with undertakings of STRATA with the purpose to evaluate the following aspects: first, to what extent, which decision makers, and for what purposes were using STRATA products; and second, what impact the STRATA prod­ucts have had on the actual policy-making process. The research results showed that STRATA’s contribution to the genesis of education policy decisions is insignificant. It is the initial data gathered by STRATA rather than its con­clusions or recommendations that are generally used. The analysis that has been done could be considered a starting point for further discussion regarding the contribution of expert analytical centres financed from public funds to the process of Lithuania’s public political life.</p> Aušra Brazinskaitė, Magnus Tomas Kėvišas Copyright (c) 2022 Thu, 20 Oct 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Museums of the Jewish Culture and History in Europe and the USA in the 20th–21st Centuries: Discourse Analysis of Role Change <p>Museums of the Jewish culture and history are undergoing numerous transformations in the 21st cen­tury. Among them, one can observe the emergence of the dualism of their mission. On the one hand, they purport to preserve and represent the history and identity of Jewish communities; on the other hand, the Jewish culture in museums is becoming a universal means for learning from this nation’s experience. The purpose of the article is, by drawing on discourse analysis, to find out trends in exploring the roles of museums of the Jewish culture and history in Europe and the USA in the 20th and 21st centuries. The results of the study showed a wide range of missions and educational activities of museums of the Jewish culture and history: from warning of the dangers of the stigmatization, discrimination and persecution to a hopeful message about tolerance, democracy, equality and peace which is to come.</p> Irina Pocienė Copyright (c) 2022 Thu, 20 Oct 2022 00:00:00 +0000
