Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article explores the social, economic and political context of higher education reforms in the United States in order to understand contemporary changes in Brazilian higher education. The paper argues that while the Brazilian higher education system has made important achievements in the last decade, the academic profession cannot escape market pressures and neoliberal dynamics. This is particularly evident in areas related to research, funding, and the commercial value given to scientific discovery.
