La obra ofrece un balance del estado internacional de los estudios curriculares, y plantea tanto los desafíos globales como las situaciones locales en el campo. El marco del libro se ubica en la internacionalización de los estudios curriculares, la era del capitalismo digital, la postcolonización de los discursos curriculares, las tendencias y autores locales en los diversos países.
