About this title


As national planners codify and enact the university, state, and market alliance—amid global higher education trends towards internationalization, competition, and massification—debates on the efficacy of this merger have increased in recent years, clarifying a real or perceived significance. Bologna has been the conceptual vehicle within which many European nations have sought to reorient often disparate higher education sectors in order to forge the European Higher Education Area, a move replete with social, political, economic, and cultural significance. Yet, the extent to which Bologna has fomented qualitative policy change in developing post-communist nations like Albania remains ambiguous. Globalization and Higher Education in Albania explores how international educational trends mitigate higher education policy and practice in Albania, a nation which continues its complex and evolving transition from communism to a more open society. Based on archival research, original fieldwork, and supplementary interviews with subjects who in many cases work and live amidst Albania’s ongoing physical and psychosocial post-communist transformation, Jevdet Rexhepi clarifies how the interplay between global and local forces manifests in key sector policy documents and related frameworks and institutions, and he thoughtfully considers how higher education positions Albania on individual and collective levels to respond to the challenges and opportunities of globalization and the knowledge society.

About the Author:

Jevdet Rexhepi received his PhD in Education (Comparative & Int'l. Studies) from UCLA in 2011. Recent publications include Globalization & Higher Education in Albania (2013), and Reimagining Critical Theory (2012). Dr. Rexhepi's transdisciplinary approach to area studies, focused on the post-Ottoman space, continues to probe the mutual effects globalization and local sociocultural and ethnoreligious societies are having on one another. Rexhepi currently has several writing projects underway (a monograph exploring the concepts of Jihad and Shariah in the Sunni Muslim tradition from a theological, security and geopolitical vantage, and a brief historical treatise examining the genesis of the Shia sect), and he is also pursuing an MA in Islamic Studies from the University of Wellington. Dr. Rexhepi recently finished work with the US Dept. of Defense-EUCOM (2011-14), where he helped bridge academic and policy worlds, conducted independent research, and managed numerous cross-community initiatives.
