Globalisation, education policy and the Bologna Process: Interlocking and dependency discourses
Kolokitha, M. 2016. Globalisation, education policy and the Bologna Process: Interlocking and dependency discourses. Educational Journal of the University of Patras UNESCO Chair. 3 (1), pp. 108-122.
This article traces the interconnection of the Bologna Process (BP) and the globalisation discourses which introduce a generic policy ensemble in European Higher Education (EHE). The two discourses appear as imbricated within an ideological understanding of the policy discourse. I explore similarities and controversies between the two discourses focusing particularly on knowledge economy driven policies and trends in higher education. Finally, I suggest that the high level of intertextuality between the globalisation and the discourses in their discursive construction permits us to consider them as interlocking and dependency discourses.
