|Other Titles:||Globalization and the Change of State/Market Relationships: A Contextual Analysis of the Marketization of Higher Education|
Department od Education, NTNU
For years researchers have explained the marketization of higher education in light of now-liberalism and the downsizing of the state. However, they failed to point out the forces that have pushed higher education, whether in market or centrally-planned economies to a convergent mode of development. After examining the attributes of globalization and the change of relationships between state and market, the author argues that economic globalization has resulted in the global capitalism and global pressure for open market, and political globalization has weakened the states. Bourgeoning capitalism and weakened states have thus blurred the border between states and the role between state and market. Facing the fierce competition in the global market, states have not much choice other than pushing higher education for greater efficiency and competitiveness. Therefore, a triangle of state authority, market and academic oligarchy as proposed by Burton Clark would not be sufficient in explaining the coordination of higher education, the fourth factor ? globalization would have to be added to reflect the changing context of higher education.
