23 SES 11 C, Globalising Europe Through Education: Knowledge, Power and the New Imperialism?
This paper critically examines the work of the European Commission sponsored network: The European Expert Network on the Economics of Education (EENEE). Working within the theoretical framework provided by Kanishka Jayasuriya’s Regulatory Regionalism approach to governance, the paper sets out to contribute to understanding of the extent to which the Economics of Education as a paradigm has been enabled to contribute to the incremental and regional neo-liberalisation of the regulation of Higher Education within the EU. The paper presents: (i) a summary of the Economics of Education paradigm; (ii) analysis of research conducted by the EENEE network, and (iii) European Commission policy texts and agreed EU policy positions for Higher Education. The paper argues that the work of the EENEE network constitutes a potentially significant component in the construction and maintenance of a neo-liberal consensus for the regulation of Higher Education. However, the evidence of policy formation would suggest that the strategic mobilisation of the Economics of Education by the European Commission has done more to contribute to the construction of the EU as a space for Higher Education regulation that to produce effects in terms of shifting policy discourse or preference in an even incrementally neo-liberal direction.
