30 Years of Educational Collaboration in the OECD.
Although its main focus is on economic collaboration, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has played a very influential role in the exchange of educational ideas and experience on an international level. It also is true that while OECD involves the nations of the European Community, Norway and Sweden have had a disproportionate influence. The principal purposes of this study are to explain how the OECD came to play its influential role in educational policy, and how the exchange of educational ideas and experiences within the organization came to be strongly influenced by the policy thinking and practice of the Nordic countries.
