This research is aimed to analyze existing international education policies in Indonesia. I specifically conducted a comparative analysis on policies or regulations that a local non-governmental organization, the Putera Sampoerna Foundation (PSF), and the Ministry of Education (MONE) are constructing for their k-12 international education programs. I analyzed PSF and MONE public official documents on international education policies, including MONE legal documents and decrees on education and PSF official guidebook on the organization's educational projects. I compared and contrasted the two actors' frameworks on the type of identity and responsibility that international education should form in students. Using a qualitative research method of space mapping, I located the two actors' position within the three major international education frameworks: 1) neoliberal education, 2) human rights education and 3) environmental education. Through this analysis, I was able to see where the two actors stand in relation to one another, in terms of their goal for international education. Results from this study are expected to facilitate the development of quality international education practices in Indonesia by promoting cooperation between the national government and local organization in providing this education.
