Abstract

The process of globalisation has given rise to new challenges for contemporary educational research. It not only modifies its object of study but also its methods of analysis. The aim of this paper is to reflect on these challenges through the results of research on the global education agenda. This research focuses on the relationship between education and poverty, exploring the global education agenda in this field, its effect on national education policies and its effects on dynamics, practices and devices developed at the local scale. After explaining the objectives, development and main results of the research, the article argues the need for contemporary studies in the sociology of education to move away from methodological 'nationalism', 'statism' and 'educationalism' in such a way as to capture the effects of globalisation on both education policies and systems.
