Governing Universities Globally provides a comprehensive account of higher education in the world today and successfully demonstrates how the study of universities now needs to acknowledge to the global environment. Andrew Steven Gunn, Political Studies 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. The comprehensive coverage of global university governance includes conceptual, theoretical and empirical analyses that will be invaluable to higher education researchers and students, and to public policy academics, students and practitioners. Global governance analysts, global business and management postgraduates, as well as regulation theorists and practitioners will also find this book to be of great interest.Organizations, Regulation and Rankings Roger King ... previously, while in 2007 40 per cent of research council grants had an international component, and half of PhD students and 40 per ... universities in support of an increasingly sophisticated economy has led to public policies also that strongly reflect the models foundanbsp;...
