International Policy Agendas and Global Governance

Over the last three decades, globalization has presented a new set of challenges and opportunities for policy-makers and implementers in the field of education. Global actors are reshaping priorities, approaches and agendas of the international community with large repercussions for national and local governments. Similarly, the governance arrangements and financial mechanisms used to achieve international policy agendas, such as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, have undergone a noticeable change. In this context, the traditional role of the state is gradually evolving, with the role of non-state national, regional and new international actors mounting.
