The global knowledge economy, the changing nature of knowledge production, research funding mechanisms, and labour market for doctoral degree holders are driving forces that together have led to an increased interest in International Collaborative Doctoral Programmes (ICDP) in England and Denmark.
This PhD project focuses on international collaborative doctoral education as policy, practice and as an object of knowledge and examines stakeholders’ social imaginaries at inter/national, institutional and individual levels that make ICDP possible, giving such programmes sense and legitimacy.
Here imaginaries are social because they are socially constructed and have social (and material) impacts. Such social imaginaries also have elements of moral structure (what is right) and moral agency (what is worth striving for) (Taylor, 2004).
The complexity of multi-level social imaginaries in different contexts renders challenges in conceptualising and conducting ICDP. The absence of consensus in ICDP definitions and of accurate minimum data sets precludes comparison and debate across institutions and programmes in the global north and south.
Fully funded collaborative opportunity.
