This book examines the conditions that lead to micropolitics in international schools, investigating the effects and manifestations of power, and analysing the factors that create conflict. It looks at the micropolitical interactions in two international schools, focusing on their history, management, location and socio-cultural environment. Both schools are unique and affected by a series of diverse variables related to location, history, organisational structure and the people associated with each school. The book identifies five factors that give rise to micropolitics. These are the isolation of each school, its specific location, its history, the way it fragments and who has control. International schools can fragment due to the diversity of stakeholders, the different levels of power and influence within the school, and the development of cliques, subcultures and departments. This book will be an essential reference, not only for school leadership, management teams and research students, but also for those working in international schools.
