23 SES 11 C, Globalising Europe Through Education: Knowledge, Power and the New Imperialism?
In this paper I examine Europe’s globalising strategies as they are mediated through higher education. I show how higher education, as a form of 'soft power', has been deployed to secure multiple objectives: (i) the promotion of economic competitiveness within and beyond the region (eg. Africa, Latin America, Australia, United States, Asia); (ii) the establishment of global regulatory standards for the creation of knowledge and its governance which places it into heightened competition with other regulatory standard setters; and (iii) the advance of the EU’s state-building regional project. I explore how, in the name of ‘Europe’, an alignment of political and economic actors organize, construct, and mobilize their activities and political projects around a particular assemblage of political geographic scales of governance. These ‘higher education’ projects, in turn, have extra-regional effects, causing the destabilization and reworking of existing geo-strategic relations, as well as higher education governance arrangements within and beyond Europe.
