Transnational Governance of Higher Education: On Globalization and International University Ranking Lists


by Sverker Lindblad & Rita Foss Lindblad — 2009

This chapter is about globalization in higher education and how “globalism” is playing a role in stimulating university transformation around the world. Our specific focus is on international university ranking lists. Such lists are being given increasingly more space and attention in the mass media and by governments as well as by supranational organizations and the universities themselves. There has also been an increase in the number of ranking lists, each one presenting somewhat different criteria and procedures for identifying ranking positions.
