GATS and the Education Service Industry: The Politics of Scale and Global Reterritorialization.
Robertson, Susan L.; Bonal, Xavier; Dale, Roger
Comparative Education Review, v46 n4 p472-96 Nov 2002
Analyzes potential effects of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) on the orientation and control of national education systems. Explains concepts of space, scale, and territorialization in relation to critical shifts in GATS's activity in education. Suggests that rescaling aspects of educational governance to the global level will pose considerable problems for national states, related to diminished state authority and lack of global mechanisms of accountability.
