Rawolle, Shaun and Lingard, Bob 2015, Bourdieu and doing policy sociology in education. In Gulson, Kalervo N., Clarke, Matthew and Petersen, Eva Bendix (ed), Education policy and contemporary theory : implications for research, Routledge, Abingdon, Eng., pp.15-26.
Despite Bourdieu having written nothing explicitly about education policy, the chapter argues the usefulness of his social theory to doing policy analysis in education within a policy sociology frame. The chapter draws on Bourdieu's 'thinking tools', including the concepts of habitus, capitals, fields and practice, which sit in a synergistic relationship with each other, and applies them to an approach for doing education policy analysis. It then considers the education policy field, logics of practice of different fields in relation to the policy cycle, policy habitus, and the emergent global education policy field.
