Knowledge Market
Neoliberalism, Teaching and Research

This work attempts to trace the links between neoliberalism and the restructuring of universities and research institutes. Having observed the numerous crises faced by higher education and research, the author shows how the neoliberal version of economics has been used to alter the means of undertaking and assessing public research, teaching and commitment. He describes the resulting transformations and argues his own position against them in this complex debate. Lastly, having paid particular attention to the ways that have not been taken, he concludes: for whom and why do we need knowledge? What type of future society do we wish?
