University Alliances in the Europe of Knowledge: Positions, Agendas and Practices in Policy Processes
Vukasovic, Martina; Stensaker, Bjørn
European Educational Research Journal, v17 n3 p349-364 May 2018
Several university alliances have been established in Europe in an attempt to influence the development of policies in research and education. As such, these alliances can be seen as being new players in the increasingly complex multi-actor, multi-level governance in this policy domain. The paper compares two key university alliances in Europe; in particular, how membership differences are related to their positions in the policy arena, their policy agendas and their policy formation and lobbying practices. The study contributes to understanding of, first, the role of university alliances in European level policy processes concerning higher education and research; and, second, the implications their involvement might have for future shaping of European initiatives in the knowledge domain.
