Transforming Education In Egypt

Fatma H. Sayed

The implementation, internalization, and sustainability of policy reforms are all influenced by the social, cultural, and political context in which they are introduced. In effect, the conditionality of development assistance is a major contextual variable that influences international cooperation in basic education. It contributes to a discourse of mistrust in development assistance and public policies related to it and prevents the achievement of a satisfactory level of “domestic resonance”. Conditionality has a role in international socialization that can be related to the concept of utility maximization accompanied by “rationalist” international relations theorists. Analysis shows that the terms of conditionality were linked to foreign development assistance to basic education in Egypt during the 1990s, and these terms are associated with the conspiracy in public discourse.
