Exploring capacity-building: between neo-liberal globalisation and national systems of education and training
paper draws on a case study of a small private training provider that operates
in Melbourne, Australia in order to investigate innovative educational
practices arising in the context of neo-liberal globalisation. In
the functionalist literature these innovative practices are commonly called
'capacity building', although the term 'capability' is sometimes used in
parallel ways. But as leaders in the functionalist tradition note,
'capacity-building' is not well conceptualised.
