Dr Janja Komljenovic

Senior Research Associate

Research Overview

I am currently working on the ‘Understanding Knowledge, Curriculum and Student Agency’ project within the Centre for Global Higher Education, which is interested in knowledge practices and student transformation. My research interests also include education governance, higher education industry and political economy of markets. I am working on integrating macro/meso and micro levels of processes and analysis.

Before coming to Lancaster I was a Marie Curie Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, where I particularly focused on the diversity and complexity of markets in and around universities, including the variety of actors that have entered the sector, their strategies, ways of working, and consequences for higher education and societies at large.

I have been also working in higher education policy since 2003 at institutional and national level in Slovenia, and in the Bologna Process in Europe. I am particularly active in quality assuance; acting as an evaluator of quality assurance agencies for ENQA and evaluator of universities for national agencies.
