This trip will take her to Chile and Bolivia for 3 ½ months researching processes of region building and constructions of quality assurance in Latin American Higher Education.
Her data collection will primarily be comprised of semi-structured interviews with policy makers, quality assurance technicians and academics, which will be incorporated into critical comparative case studies following a Critical Cultural Political Economy approach.
Editor’s Note: Hazel Price is an ESRC funded doctoral student in the Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol and a member of the Centre for Globalisation, Education & Social Futures. Her research investigates the multi-scalar making of quality assurance policies in Higher Education in Latin America and interactions with processes of regional integration.
