University Reform in Finland

Speech for the Beneath the University -seminar in Minneapolis, April 9th 2010.

University reform in Finland, it’s background, progress and current situation. We discuss what can be collectively done to overturn the disastrous effects that market driven, managerial reforms continuously impose on us and our communities. We end by collecting the themes we’ve discussed, and summarize some central issues we’ve learned through our struggle in Finland.
