This chapter is concerned with the context within which the policy analysis study on the introduction of the International Baccalaureate (the IB) at three international schools in remote communities in Indonesia, was located. Specifically, it focuses on three contexts: the International Baccalaureate (IB), the Indonesian context, and remote schooling. Section 2.2 provides the background to the IB and positions it within the field of international education. It details its history, key features, structure, mission and global growth, including the educational ideologies that influenced the emergence of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP). Section 2.3 provides an outline of education in the Indonesian context, including its history and structure, as well as relevant government department policies related to international schools. Section 2.4 introduces the field of remote schooling and issues related to living and working in remote schools.
