Contents

The purpose of the course is to examine the mechanisms of governance in education in the contemporary international society. We will focus on the change from the so-called traditional administration of education that relied on direct and top-down management confined to the national context, to decentralized, horizontal, increasingly transnational and networked forms. The students will learn about the diversity of actors, including intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations, and governance mechanisms that are implicated in the contemporary governance practices. The latter include accountability and evaluation, comparison, mediatization, public-private partnerships, contractualism, and others. The students will be expected to think critically about how new forms of governance intertwine with old forms, how they re-shape the relationships between those who govern and those who are governed, and about the resistances and power struggles that occur in this context.
