Call for Proposals

Call for Proposals: International conference on “Multiple Competition in Higher Education – and Beyond”, April 4th and 5th 2024, University of Kassel, Germany

In the research group “Multiple competition in higher education,” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), researchers are working together in eight sub-projects at ten universities to develop a comprehensive understanding of multiple competition in higher education based on contributions from sociology, economics, and management studies (www.uni-kassel.de/go/multiplecompetition). Given the complexity and novelty of our research, the main focus of the first three years has been on the German higher education system. At the end of that funding period, we would like to share and discuss our results with related research from other scholars at an international conference.
At the same time, we invite contributions related to the topic of our research group. Particularly welcome are contributions that add a comparative perspective on the issue of multiple competition. For example, these could either ask how multiple competition unfolds in the institutional configuration of other national higher education systems or focus on constellations of multiple competition in other sectors of society (business, politics, arts, healthcare, public administration, etc.).
Christine Musselin (Sciences Po, Paris) and David Stark (Columbia University, New York) are our keynote lecturers.
