In the past decade, poststructural policy analysis in education has evolved, primarily focusing on disrupting dominant narratives about education policy research, development and implementation, and the aims and outcomes of the policy-research nexus. This book originates from an ‘Education Policy Analysis for a Complex World’ workshop held in conjunction with the University of British Columbia and sponsored by a Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Connection Grant. The workshop focused on one over-arching question: To what extent can poststructural theories offer innovative policy analyses, and contribute to new forms of policy development and implementation? The chapters in this collection provide responses from the participants of the workshop, and serve as illustrations of the broad range of scholarship that may be identified as poststructural policy analysis. This book was originally published as a special issue of Critical Studies in Education.
