Abstract: This article discusses how the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) addresses the task of conducting international policy research. The article begins with a descriptive account of CERI's work, including the way member countries shape the research agenda. Several issues which relate to how research evidence is compiled within an international context are addressed. First, why the supposed priority area of lifelong learning is only weakly … Show more

“…Normand (2010) shows the networked nature of organizations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to explain how ideas flow between policymakers and expert communities. Schuller (2005) shows how the prevalent ideas among the OECD epistemic community 'identify and prioritize' issues (Schuller 2005) as well as shape the techniques by which these issues are to be studied and potentially resolved. Politics, 'political work' (Grek 2013), and networking all play a large role in the agenda setting around 'technical work' in education.…”

“…In this discussion, educational research and its capacity to provide evidence have often been subject to criticism. Tom Schuller (2006) notes and refers also to Angrist (2004) that educational research has been strongly criticized for its weakness in not even attempting to supply rigorous evidence on the effects of education. Some of the criticism concerns the low academic standing of educational research, and the low level of impact on policy or practice.…”

“…Indeed, Schuller (2004) observes that the extent to which research evidence influences policy is subject to a number of factors, which he identifies as ranging from political opportunism to pressure of public opinion to the quality and capacity of the available research. Policy makers control this terrain.…”
