This collection focuses on education policy in the context of globalisation and draws together influential research dealing with the interplay between education policy and globalisation. Globalisation and neo-liberalism in relation to education policy are addressed, as is the imp...act of the Global Financial Crisis; the recent rise of ethno-nationalism; and progressive challenges to neo-liberal hegemony. A number of chapters deal with the new spatialities instantiated by globalisation new technology, and consider the implications for education policy. Also discussed are global policy actors (such as the OECD, EU, and edu-businesses) in education policy; the significance of international large scale assessments to an emergent global policy field; refugees and education; English language policy and globalisation; off-shore schools; and the importance of affect in policy in the context of globalisation. The collection closes with two methodological contributions that consider the implications of globalisation in today's critical education policy analysis. The collection is brought together in a substantial introduction that traverses the literature and research on globalisation and education policy and also situates the chapters and approaches in the collection within the field. The chapters in this book were originally published as articles in various Taylor and Francis journals.
