Standardising Europe: The Bologna Process and New Modes of Governing
Fejes, Andreas
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v1 n2 p25-49 Sum 2008
This article explores how the discourses of the Bologna Process have been accepted and adopted as the dominating ones in European higher education. It consists of a governmentality and discourse analysis inspired by Foucault and based on selected European and Swedish policy documents. The aims of the analysis are to illustrate how governing operates discursively and how it is legitimized, to identify what subjectivities are being shaped and fostered and to de-stabilise the taken-for-granted ideas of the present and so contribute to a space for reflection on how governing and power operate in higher education today. (Contains 2 notes.)
