Power, politics, and higher education in southern Africa: International regimes, local governments, and educational autonomy

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study addresses the manifestations of power dynamics in negotiations between international organizations operating at the global level (e.g., the World Bank, WTO, and UNESCO) and international organizations operating at the regional level (e.g., NEPAD, SADC, and AAU). It further addresses how these dynamics influence the educational autonomy of governments in the region. Although it focuses on Southern Africa, the principles drawn and the models developed therein can contribute to a better understanding of inter-organizational interactions in other regions of the world. This study also illuminates specific and general instances of power dynamics, which resulted in models and categories of power that are useful to inform a wide variety of academic disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities. The key contribution of this study to the discourse about the politics of comparison is to provide comparativists with an insight into the indispensability to move from conflict management to conflict prevention in international negotiations that influence the autonomy of national educational systems.
