The intensification of the globalization process, the weakening of the National States with the strengthening of supra-national identity territories and the advent of the information technologies favored a more intense interchange between countries and gave a new life to comparative studies. This dissertation aims at analyzing what has been produced in Brazil in the form of Master s Dissertations and Doctorate s Thesis in the last two decades in the field of International Comparative Education. The objective of this research was to understand if these works are realized according to the standards, procedures and perspectives indicated by multilateral agencies or otherwise, if what has been academically accomplished in the field has been criticizing the influence of multilateral agencies on the educational policies implemented in Brazil. A group of 37 keywords related to Comparative Education was searched in the CAPES Databank. The analyses revealed 53 works on International Comparative Education. This material was divided according to the topics they presented and a group of 11 dissertations and thesis on educational systems and policies was obtained. These works were analyzed according to the following categories: a) modernization and development; b) the hole of multilateral agencies/autonomy; c) educational system s reforms; d) homogeneity/diversity; e) the hole attributed to the indicators. The results show that although some of these works contain certain characteristics that are typical of the conceptions presented by multilateral agencies, the majority of them is critical and denounces the hegemonic patterns established by developed countries and that are imposed to the developing countries, based on uniform diagnosis performed by multilateral agencies.
