International policy transfer in VET: Conceptual approaches and theoretical foundations applied to the study of transfer activities from Germany to Egypt, Malaysia, and Korea

Abstract:

The success of an economic system is often viewed in relation to the structure of workforce training including initial VET. For more than 100 years VET in Germany has served as an example of good practice and attempts have been made to transfer this approach to countries around the world. Nevertheless, the attempts to copy the German structures often failed. Therefore, it becomes important to seek reasons for these failures in order to draw lessons for future transfer activities. Germany has co-operated in the field of VET with the countries Egypt, Malaysia and Korea. Applying the theoretical conceptualizations of policy transfer from Phillip and Ochs and Dolowitz and Marsh this study reconstructs the policy transfer processes in the phases of attraction, decision, implementation, and internalization in these three countries. A literature review has been conducted, including grey and white papers of all major development organizations and 6 interviews with stakeholders. The reconstruction also includes the context conditions in each country, political processes, and power structures. In order to understand the context conditions more comprehensively the construct of work culture (Wolf, 2009; Greinert, 1999; Greinert, 2004) has been introduced, which serves as a matrix for related context conditions. As a result of this comparative analysis determining factors for the success or failure of VET transfer have been indentified. With these results we contribute to the extension and systematisation of research on VET policy transfer with the goal to gain knowledge about capable and sustainable scenarios of successful transfer activities.
