The transfer of public policies from one country or jurisdiction to another has a long lineage. A very early example comes from the sixth century, when representatives of the Japanese court visited China to examine its educational system, apparently resulting in the establishment of the first national Japanese education system (Arnove, 2007: 5). Transfer can also, of course, occur across time, whereby policies which were ‘rejected at one period become feasible in another’ (King, E., 2007: 24), although this chapter will focus predominantly on transfer between jurisdictions.
