The Political Economy of Educational Reforms and Capacity Development in Southeast Asia


This book presents policy debate and analysis of educational reform context, process, and capacity - mainly in Southeast Asian countries - and calls for a new political economy of educational reforms and capacity development. The conceptual/analytical framework addresses both the efficiency and equity dimensions of educational reforms; encompasses all the stakeholders in the process of educational reforms; and suggests whose capacity needs to be developed. Country cases, targeting Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam and featuring Southeast Asia/country experts as contributors, offer in-depth analyses of the dynamics of educational reform context, process and capacity, and examine efficiency, equity, and quality issues in basic and higher education. This book is a highly relevant source of information for education policy makers and planners, and will help researchers to understand the innovative way to analyse educational reforms and capacity development in developing countries.
