Abstract

As an introduction to the book, this chapter outlines key characteristics about the role of international organizations in general and the OECD in particular in terms of global governance. The chapter thus also outlines some of the main research positions in the field and introduces the term governing complex. The chapter then presents a discussion on the role of history in global policy studies and argues that historical approaches contribute vital insights to our understanding of the contemporary workings of global governance in education. Finally, the chapter briefly introduces the structure of the book, including its three thematic sections and the chapters in each section.

Bibliographical note

This edited volume focuses on the historical role of the OECD (The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) in shaping global education policy. In this book, contributors shed light on the present-day perspective of Comparative Education as a logical addition to current scholarship on the history of international organizations in the field of education. Doing so, the book provides a deeper understanding of contemporary developments in education that will enable us to reflect critically on the trajectories and future developments of education worldwide.
