Transnational Dynamics in Quality Assurance and Evaluation Politics of Basic Education in Brazil, China and Russia (BCR)

Quality Assurance and Evaluation (QAE) has globally become one of the most powerful framing factors for learning. The consequences are not always positive, as evaluation may have strong unintended side effects, as shown in numerous studies. The research evidence, however, mainly focuses on liberal advanced societies. The cases of our study are the three large and increasingly powerful nations of Brazil, China and Russia. They are characterised as future societies and strive to overcome their dependency on global models to establish a position of stronger sovereignty in the global arena. The main research objective is to explore how the intertwinement of the local, the sub-national, the national, the regional, and the global scales constructs the local dynamics in QAE politics and thus shapes local learning environments in the case countries. The project will develop and probe a new theoretical and methodological approach, Comparative Analytics of Dynamics in Education Politics (CADEP), towards comparative understanding of education systems and open avenues for mutual learning. By means of a new theoretical and methodological approach, the project will affect the general comparative, socio-historical and transnational understanding of the construction of learning environments, with a particular focus on the policies and practices of QAE..
