This book examines the extent to which international organizations have shaped reforms in education and training in federalist countries with regards to policy convergence. In advanced democracies, international organizations have become increasingly influential in government activity. This also applies to policy fields that have traditionally been nearly exclusively regulated by the nation-state. How strong is their influence in policy fields like education where they rely on purely soft governance to stimulate national policies From a political science perspective, three major initiatives are analyzed: the OECD’s PISA study, the European Bologna process and the European Union’s Copenhagen process. Within a few years, these initiatives have contributed to deep transformations within the education arena. This book elucidates the processes in which nation-states comply with these initiatives, using the examples of Switzerland and the United States.
