Abstract:

In the wave of globalization, it becomes a priority for China, a rising power, to think about how to grasp the trend of international education development accurately, and then join in international education policy-making with proper discourse coincident with the logic of international education’s history and culture. Adopting Foucault's discourse theory and the policy process theory, this study took UNESCO's "The General Assembly Resolution" from 1945 to 2009 as the research object and analyzed the text of each Resolution with N-Vivo8.0. The results show that the philosophy behind UNESCO's dominant education policies in different periods,which include "fundamental education" during 1940s and 1950s, "education planning"during 1960s,"lifelong education"during 1970s and 1980s and"education for all" since 1990s, keeps wondering between "liberalism" and "conservatism", while the liberation of human beings seems to be unchanged long-term trends with true vitalities and appeals in international education development.
