The organization, funding and leadership of universities – Sweden in international comparison

This senior research project (involving Mats Benner) encompasses historical, institutionalist and comparative perspectives of Swedish universities. The project will outline how different tasks and missions of universities have evolved over time, how this has impacted institutional specificities (such as patterns of governance and interplay with stakeholders), the relation of the policy context, and how all of these aspects in Sweden compare with other geographies in Europe, North America and Asia.
