Nested tensions and interwoven dilemmas in higher education: the view from the Nordic countries
KTH, School of Education and Communication in Engineering Science (ECE), Learning.
2014 (English)In: Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society, ISSN 1752-1378, E-ISSN 1752-1386, Vol. 7, no 2, 233-250 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper reflects on the challenges facing European higher education by investigating current dynamics across three national systems: Norway, Sweden and Finland. We identify four sets of tensions permeating current dynamics across the region, and link those to a series of dilemmas facing European universities more broadly. The paper demonstrates that there is a complex interplay between the so-called 'nested tensions' and different types of internal and external pressures. We conclude by providing a set of policy recommendations as well as suggestions for future research inquiries.
