Abstract:

"The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages" was published adecade ago and has been influential ever since, not only in its European'home' but throughout the world. This book traces the processes of theinfluence by inviting authors from universities and ministries in 11countries to describe and explain what happened in their case. There areeveryday factors of curriculum development - which sometimes includecoincidence and happenstance - and there are also traditions of resistanceor acceptance of external influences in policy-making. Such factors havealways existed in bilateral borrowing from one country to another but theCEFR is a supra-national document accessible through globalisedcommunication. The book is thus not only focused on matters of languageeducation but is also a Comparative Education case-study of policyborrowing under new conditions.
