Abstract

Starting point for this analysis is the fusion of three subdivisions (“Kommissionen”) of the German Educational Research Association (“Deutsche Gesellschaft für Erziehungswissenschaft”) that leads to the new head division of Comparative and Multicultural Education (“International und Interkulturell Vergleichende Erziehungswissenschaft”). The author aims at revealing the standing and functions the components “international”, “interkulturell” and “national” have in research literature by analysing the most important databanks of educational and social science literature. The usage of the term “kul-turell” (cultural) serves as a crucial example to show how indefinite and variable such a concept is applied in educational science.
