2019 (English)In: The Governing-Evaluation-Knowledge Nexus: Swedish Higher Education as a Case / [ed] Christina Segerholm, Agneta Hult, Joakim Lindgren and Linda Rönnberg, Dortrecht: Springer, 2019, p. 181-199Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter we initially discuss the relation between governing, evaluation, and knowledge. Then we go back to the ideal typical notion of increasingly institutionalised evaluation machinery and locate the important work of what we label as qualocrats and what may be termed the burden of judgements within this overall frame. We finally discuss the expansion and the increasing complexity of evaluation and quality assurance work in higher education and point to some possible implications and problems.
