About the book

Education is an important part of every culture. Components of culture are reproduced through educational processes, and these are in themselves exponents of fundamental cultural values. Therefore it is not an easy matter to change educational traditions or systems - or to transfer ideas from one culture to another.

For the same reasons, an increasing interest is attributed to education within international relations. Peoples and nations liberated from repression as well as developing countries, (or one might say countries trying to develop), ask for assistance and aid. Nevertheless the result often seems to be cultural imperialism creating "curriculum dependency". But what are the alternatives?

In this book you will find examples of such critical analyses. In addition there will be general theoretical discussions, proposals for specific approaches and some attempts at estabilishing reciprocity in the work.
