Critical Intellectual Work – an endangered tradition under neoliberal regimes

The study attends to the influences on broad policies, conceptions and practices of education from the present neoliberal regimes of thought. The aim is to analyse these influences from a critical and global perspective by looking at how national situations are changing according to the neoliberal governmentalities. The study looks at the developments both in the Global- North and the Global-South through influential international powers like the Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA-agenda) in the North and the Education for All (EFA-agenda) in the South. The study claims that schools and universities are being reconfigured to fulfil their role as producers of a new type of person called the neoliberal being with certain characteristics that fits the neoliberal ideas of surveillance and individualism. The EFA-agenda influences almost all countries in the Global-South through its close connection to external and international economic support and through a doublespeak that talks the language of human rights but is operative through neoliberal surveillance powers. There is a need to question this neoliberal global hegemony that is operating through false promises.
