THE INTENSIFICATION AND SOPHISTICATION OF TRANSNACIONAL GOVERNANCE IN EDUCATION: AN ANALYSIS OF OECD'S PISA

Luís Miguel Carvalho About the author

ABSTRACT:

The paper discusses the fabrication of agendas for the education governance in the name of an expert knowledge at a transnational scale. For this, it analyzes the intervention of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) through one of its main, if not the main, devices - the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). The article gives an account of the processes and effects of the dynamics of transnational regulation that occurs with PISA, and shows how the OECD intervention has been intensified and sophisticated, giving attention to a set of dynamics that supports the increasing influence of PISA, via new modes of expertknowledge production, exchange and diffusion.
