The Discourse of Educational Policy in the Laws on Education: the Case of Central Asia
Evidence-based Educational Policy
(Master’s programme)

2016
Abstract: This paper deals with the effects that a particular political regime has or might have on a national tertiary educationa. The author explores limitations of the straight forward descriptions of a certain educational system as «authoritarian» and puts forward instead the idea of patronal politics elaborated by American political scientist Henry Hale. By means of discourse analysis of the Central Asian and Ukranian laws on education she argues that gradual decline of the rhetoric of national exclusiveness paves the way for global neoliberal agenda of educational policy.

Keywords: higher education, patron politics, political regimes, educational policies, laws on education, and Central Asia.
