Abstract

Most international organizations participate in education because this sector contributes to development. This is the situation for the three organizations that we have examined: the OECD, UNESCO and the World Bank. This paper follows on from previous research which attempted to identify their exact attitude to the link between education and development over the period 1990 to 2010. For this present research, in the context of a common approach to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we have paid particular attention to the possible effects that this context brings to the organizations' official positions: does it provoke paradigm shifts in terms of development visions likely to affect education? Is there a convergence among organizations that historically did not share the same vision?
