International organizations and HE policy

Bassett, R. M. and Maldonado-Maldonado, A. (Eds). International Organizations and Higher Education Policy. Thinking Globally, Acting Locally? Routledge, New York and London, 2009. ISBN: 978-0-415-99043-1. Pages: 328.

The book moves away from analyses of developments in higher education, which focus exclusively on the national context, towards critical analyses of the way globally prominent organisations, such as the World Bank, UNESCO, OECD, WTO, etc. shape policy development and implementation worldwide. This edited volume comprises articles by scholars as well as by members of the above organisations, with the primary goal to examine how international organisations influence both regional and national policy making processes, and the global higher education agenda.
