Planning, Re-Bordering and Setting Times: A Comparative Analysis of European and Latin American "Education Spaces"
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v11 n4 p520-537 2013
The article compares educational regionalisation in Europe and Latin America. This analysis unveils the influence of three social phenomena in the two case studies, namely power, fields of activity and knowledge. Mostly, it focuses on the initiatives led by the European Union and the Organisation of Ibero-American States in order to implement large strategic, multi-government educational plans in each continent. The actions of international political players, the theories (or "ontologies") embedded in these devices and the consequences for sub-national politics are observed.
