Europeanization of Higher Education: International Networking and Transnational Governance of Higher Education and Knowledge Production

Abstract [en]

Focus: This symposium concerns the making of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). It will deal with initiatives to construct the EHEA and to analyse principles and practices governing the “construct” in context of institutional restructuring and transnational networking. Problem: The EHEA makes visible a new emergent form of governing education through the production as well as reproduction of knowledge. It is a multifaceted on-going construction to shape an European expertise in the “co-production of science and society” (Nowotny mfl, 2001). EHEA is at once the tool and the outcome of new kinds of power-knowledge links, manifested in expressions such as “the knowledge society” or the “knowledge triangle”, as well as in instruments connected to the EHEA, e.g. benchmarking or ranking. Given this, it is vital to identify the dynamics in the EHEA construction, including the working by different agents, networks and tools. Theoretical Framework: The current symposium is based on a dynamic nominalist framework (e.g. Hacking, 2000). The EHEA is by this to be seen as a political construct whose emergent “beings” becomes manifest in and through a manifold of knowledge inscribed practices (e.g. Popkewitz, 2009), with governance embodied in the categorisations and notions of progress as well as the different socio-science networks (Latour, 2005) whose machinery produces evaluations (Foss Lindblad, Lindblad & Popkewitz, 2009), certifications, benchmarking and rankings (e.g. Wedlin, Sahlin, & Hedmo, 2009) and systems of expertise. In current discursive settings and university restructuring, the practices of governance are indeed transnational (e.g Djelic & Sahlin, 2006) with globalizing characteristics such as and international education markets, student flows etc. in on-going fabrication of Europe (Novoa & Lawn, 2000) Methodological comments: The contributions based on analyses of strategic EHEA documents where ways of relating higher education and research to each other is important. This is complemented by analyses of different navigation tools such as rankinglists (e.g. Kehm & Stensaker, 2009) and international networks in order to capture the dynamics at work including issues of standardization, diversification and classification. Expected outcomes: A more clearly identified arena for the EHEA, including agents, networks, tools and systems of expertise. This is important for further studies of the EHEA and in developing research cooperation on the transnational governance of Europeanization of Higher Education. Design of the symposium: Firstly; two papers on Europeanization Initiatives, the Bologna Process will be analysed with specific reference to Spain, followed by an analysis of the making and development of the new EU strategy Europe 2020. Secondly; papers on practises in the making to the EHEA, first comparative analyses of knowledge production and Evidence Based Policy in Higher Education in France, UK and the USA and then on Benchmarking and evaluations of higher education and research and how higher education is constructed in these practices. The last paper is a presentation of research on the space of actors and networks organising and influencing Global Governing of Universities. Thirdly, we discuss symposium contributions in relation to the general problematics and the a research agenda concerning the Europeanization of higher education.
