Shannon, William; Doidge, Mathew; Holland, Martin – European Journal of Higher Education, 2019
In this paper we examine the normative and strategic impact of the Bologna Process on the New Zealand University system. We argue that, from a normative perspective, Bologna has not resulted in substantive change. Nevertheless, a specific, if low-level, normative response has been evident, driven by perceived market incentives and the market-based…

Standish, Katerina – Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, 2019
In this perspective I endeavor to offer a transpersonal reflection of the work of decolonization from the standpoint of a minority-cisgender-female-White-settler-migrant. This work, the work of decolonization, is not the same for all of us, it depends on our place in the globe and our "baggage" as beings who inherit the past while living…

The idea of the 'intercultural hyphen' is likened to a gap or bridge between ethnic groups, created from the ongoing intertwining of sociopolitical and intellectual histories.
