The post-Cold War order has been characterized by a change in the nature of international policies with policies becoming increasingly transnational and streamlining towards convergence or at least alignment. In this course, the above mentioned assumption is explored and analyzed through an analysis of policies in different contexts (in countries) and their positioning in relation to the corresponding transnational policies. An analysis of who formulates what, when, why, and how is done focusing upon how do such factors lead (or not lead) to transnational trends in current policies, why is it happening, and what could be the possible outcomes of the same. This course includes a historical analysis (not description) of policies since 1945 and therefore, has an interdisciplinary approach embedded primarily in the disciplines of history and Political Science. Three cases: The implementation of the Bologna Process in Europe, the acknowledgement of the existence (and the non-existence) of the Global North-South Divide, and the policies in relation to learning outcomes would be discussed in relation to the World Bank, the OECD, the European Union, and the UNESCO, to draw generalisations while participants would be requested to work on the policies they choose.

This course is relevant for participants who intend to develop a deep understanding about the rise and decline of policies, the role of primary stakeholders (and their stakes) in the process, and the linkages amid them.
