University essay from Lunds universitet/Master of Science in Development Studies; Lunds universitet/Graduate School; Lunds universitet/Sociologiska institutionen

Abstract: The study aims to describe the process of ‘education policy borrowing’ in developing countries. As a Theoretical Framework Phillips and Ochs (2004) ‘Composite model’ is used. This model shows what are the processes that a country goes through while borrowing a policy. As an Empirical analysis this Model is applied to the case of Georgia, where recent Educational Reform took place. And more specifically, it concentrates on implementation of the World Bank project ‘Education System Realignment and Strengthening Program’ (later called project ‘Illia Chavchavadze’), as a part of this reform. Therefore, this thesis is based on a case study method. Expert interviews and document analysis are used as data-gathering techniques. As a result an improved ‘Composite model’ is presented.
