ABSTRACT
The nature of international education as a field of studies has been affected by global changes over the past decade. At the same time, the concept of global security has emerged, bringing together studies related to development, the environment and the understanding of violence. Although much of the education literature reflects the global security approach, it is not a field that has been subjected to much analysis as a whole. This paper provides an assessment of international education as a discipline, and outlines the global security framework. It examines how this framework is reflected in the forms of analysis used by international educationists. Finally it suggests how the central purpose of global security, namely ensuring human survival, could be adopted within international education to provide a clear sense of direction. This has specific implications for such areas as curriculum, assessment, educational provision and planning.
