23 SES 11 C, Globalising Europe Through Education: Knowledge, Power and the New Imperialism?
In October 2009, the General Assembly of UNESCO requested its Director-General to start with the preparation with a view of amending the regional convention on the recognition of qualification for the African states and for the Asian-Pacific states respectively. This decision took place ten years after the start of the Bologna process that have made a success story out of the reform of the UNESCO recognition convention for the European region, the Lisbon convention. This paper asks whether this UN organisation is about to become a framework for increasing the mobility of academics and other highly skilled people, even with a view to overcoming the North-South ‘knowledge divide’. It provides a critical analysis of the complex interaction between regionalisation and internationalisation which characterises the UNESCO regime of recognition.
