Edited by Chahid Fourali, Sally Issler, Geoffrey Elliott
Education policy and practice has historically been developed within thenational/regional context.
However, globalization has prompted educationalists to review their practice in the light of international influences.
World issues such as global warming, conflict and the depletion of earth resources have also contributed to an increased awareness of the rolethat education can play in resolving these problems.
The contributors focus on how education can bring about social change whileconnecting with theory at the level of cultural impact and policy implications.
Theyinvestigate the potential for creating a transnational value system in education, focusing on some key human rights issues both at home and overseas.
Truly international in scope, this text lays the groundwork for future research by exposing the commonalities and differences in approaches to knowledge production and its dissemination, drawing together contributions from a variety of cross cultural contexts.
