Abstract

This contribution is an open essay that aims at opening a debate, rather than demonstrating certain theses by means of empirical evidence. We mainly argue that from the year 2000 on, a series of important changes occurs regarding the way international comparative data are incorporated within national educational politics or, in other words, with respect to the way these data yield translation politics clearly different from those featuring the 20th century.
