Abstract

This panel focuses on higher education policy and the political processes that shape this policy area with a regional focus on Western Europe and North America. There are two main rationales behind this focus: (1) the growing importance of higher education policy, and (2) the lack of comparative scholarship that includes cases from both sides of the Atlantic. The panel will offer a forum to discuss key aspects of the political processes in higher education policy including the politics behind governance reforms or funding policies, the role of interest groups, policy diffusion, and policy framing.
