Part of the Policy Implications of Research in Education book series (PIRE, volume 4)


Given the exponential growth of international schools caused by an ever changing globalized world and a mobile workforce, international curriculum policy is becoming more complex. A realisation of this situation leads on to recognising the need for a range of policy analysis studies in the field. The study reported in this book was conceptualized in the light of such recognition. It was concerned with exploring the dynamics of curriculum policy processes involved in the adoption, production and enactment of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), in remote international schools in Indonesia.
