Abstract:

"The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages" was published a
decade ago and has been influential ever since, not only in its European
'home' but throughout the world. This book traces the processes of the
influence by inviting authors from universities and ministries in 11
countries to describe and explain what happened in their case. There are
everyday factors of curriculum development - which sometimes include
coincidence and happenstance - and there are also traditions of resistance
or acceptance of external influences in policy-making. Such factors have
always existed in bilateral borrowing from one country to another but the
CEFR is a supra-national document accessible through globalised
communication. The book is thus not only focused on matters of language
education but is also a Comparative Education case-study of policy
borrowing under new conditions.
