Educational reforms around the world are increasingly converging, and this is reflected in the concept of a global educational reform movement. Although several recent studies have looked at the conditions under which nation states borrow from global educational models, the political mechanisms underlying these processes are not well understood. On the basis of a case study from Switzerland, which has a system of direct democracy which appears to be particularly suitable for an analysis of political transfer processes, this article reconstructs the debate around a series of popular initiatives addressing school choice. The results of the study show that a neo-institutional approach can be useful for understanding the implementation of global educational models in a national context if it is supplemented by a theoretical analysis of the participant and takes the specific features of the local political system into account. Methodologically, the analysis of global harmonisation processes in education should consider four reference points, namely the state, the market, the general public and scientific research.
