This survey investigated the extent to which a concept such as the German evaluation concept of peer review might be capable to be implemented to another cultural context. The study surveyed the factors both supporting and inhibiting to implement peer review into another cultural context using the example of China. The research design is based on the lesson-drawing approach. Peer review is a model for evaluating quality assurance in schools and it works in a participative manner within a flat organisational hierarchy. The transfer of peer review to Chinese schools requires an open approach, using a flexible pilot. This study used an interpretation framework based on a Chinese cultural model. The paper argues that the peer review concept could be implemented to the Chinese context, but the concept clearly needs to be adapted to the Chinese context. The supporting and inhibiting factors derived from this study enable us to draw lessons about how to support and adapt policies to different cultural contexts.
