Abstract

Knowledge has become increasingly central in contemporary politics as it is understood to be the foundation on which societies coalesce and economies thrive. The seventh Politics of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (previously Europe of Knowledge) Section is interested in theoretical, empirical, and comparative contributions that investigate the role of politics and policy in the multi-level, multi-issue, and multi-actor governance of knowledge. By role, we refer to effects that ideas (including political ideologies), actors (both individual and organisational, including political parties and transnational entities), policy instruments, and institutions have on the governance, creation, dissemination, and transfer of knowledge. Panels will be oriented around one of the roles mentioned above, key empirical questions, or methodologies, and may either focus on one knowledge area or seek to integrate all three. The Section continues to welcome scholars, globally, from all theoretical and methodological approaches to critically discuss the reconfiguration of knowledge systems.
