A Decade of Change for Tertiary Education and Science Research in New Zealand: Who Benefits?
The paper considers the key changes in tertiary education research and the national science regime under neo-liberal governments in New Zealand. It tracks the moves in both systems towards mounting contestability and integration for increased economic performance. This investigation questions whether government policies around knowledge production will be successful in giving New Zealand entree into the much touted "knowledge society" and whether this is a desirable goal for the country, anyway. Finally, it looks at the other possibilities for the production of knowledge and the conditions within which it occurs. (Contains 45 references.) (Author/SAH)
