Governing Universities Globally: Organizations, Regulation and Rankings
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing | ISBN: 1847207391 | edition 2009 | PDF | 235 pages | 2,43 mb
Roger King examines how universities, as increasingly autonomous organizations, are subject to forms of global governance that rely particularly on private and peer-processes rather than legal command and compliance.
The book explores the growing influence of global regulatory governance - governmental and private - on universities and national higher education systems. It considers processes of purposeful standardization, normative internalization and markets as solutions for coordination and collective action problems, as well as hierarchical command. A range of university systems, world models and organizations, particularly those associated with Europe and the OECD are examined, with particular emphasis on the growth of national and global league tables and similar rankings of higher education institutions as a form of regulation. Governance globally is found to operate through `steerage', networks, deliberation and communities of the knowledgeable and the expert.
