The Globalization of Higher Education as a Societal and Cultural Security Problem
Samier, Eugenie A.
Policy Futures in Education, v13 n5 p683-702 Jun 2015
In this article, I propose a theory of the globalization of higher education as societal and cultural security problems for many regions of the world. The first section examines the field of security studies for theoretical frameworks appropriate to critiquing globalized higher education, including critical human, societal and cultural security critiques of the Copenhagen, Aberystwyth and Paris schools, and their relationship to the educational sector, with a focus on the university's role in the security studies field. The second section examines the effect of globalization on education as societal and cultural security problems related to neoliberalism, colonization, internationalization of curriculum and cross-cultural management studies.
