Abstract

This chapter seeks to rethink the authority of intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and their capacity to steer nation states toward certain education policy priorities. It starts with a brief outline of the notion of authority, analyzing the ways it has been redefined in recent theoretical debates. Following this outline, the authority and capacities of IGOs are discussed in view of the developments that have unsettled the neoliberal imaginary of globalization. Here, the chapter attends to critical accounts of governance in international relations and analyses of the changing scope of organizational policies during crises. Finally, it visits the deliberation on globalization’s transformations and their implications for the future of education in view of the changing authority of IGOs.
