The Academic Profession in a Rentier State: The Professoriate in Saudi Arabia
Mazawi, Andre Elias
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v43 n3 p221-244 Sep 2005
This paper describes the academic profession in Saudi Arabia, a state dependent upon oil exports, and explores how different social groups are accommodated within the higher education system. The discussion examines the relationship between political power and academic labour, and seeks to explain how local policies and practices are negotiating the converging effects of globalization on higher education.
