Governance challenges across sectors and globally, and their relevance to higher education

Date: Thursday, 16 June 2016 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: Committee Room 1, UCL Institute of Education
Speaker(s):
  • Aniko Horvath, UCL Institute of Education

Overview

The presentation examines new challenges and patterns of governance emerging across a variety of sectors globally, in Europe and in the UK. It critically examines the ways in which different academic fields reflect on and respond to such trends in their theoretical models and research practices.

It aims to explore the extent to which these competing and/or complementary theoretical and methodological models are relevant to higher education governance regimes. It asks whether and how they can inform policy and academic debates that attempt to establish the best constitutional and organisational frameworks for the conduct of research, scholarship and teaching in universities.

The presentation is based on an extensive and systematic literature review of governance of 1) global organisations, 2) the modern state, and 3) institutions like business corporations, charities and para-statal organisations such as hospitals and modern regulatory bodies.

The work for the presentation is carried out as part of a four-year major research project on the global governance of higher education at the Centre for Global Higher Education.
