ORDORIKA SACRISTAN, Imanol. Superior education and globalization: Public universities afronting a new order. Andamios [online]. 2006, vol.3, n.5, pp.31-47. ISSN 2594-1917.

The notion of globalization is analyzed here from different angles and alternative dimensions. Contrasting with traditional appreciations of globalization, the author emphasizes here its ideological dimension and political nature. Based on this perspective the author discusses the impact of contemporary exchanges and the new relation of forces between capital and labor, both at the international and national levels, on higher education all over the world. Special emphasis is placed on the emergence of a new dominating hegemonic model of higher education, based on an idealization of American elitist research universities, which subordinate and question the very existence of distinct university traditions in different nations and regions.

Keywords : University; higher education; globalization; market; politics.
