Government Involvement in Positioning Higher Education Institutions
The research work examines the influence of government agencies in the process of restructuring the higher education system in Ireland in times of massification and public sector reform. A specific focus of the research is on the intention to introduce a new institutional type, Technological Universities, to the field, and the early effects of this innovation upon organisational isomorphism. Comparisons are drawn from other higher education systems across Europe.
