Regions and higher education in difficult times

The concept of the learning region is central to the way of problem-solving. Like 'lifelong learning' the term is used variously and carelessly. This book explores the meaning and importance of the learning region. Not all universities warm to such local-regional engagement. The unwise pride of global forces and nations undermines it; but even the most prestigious and 'global' university has a local footprint and ever-watchful neighbours. The book arises from the work of PASCAL, an international non-governmental network Observatory. Its name exploits echoes of philosophical depth as well as technical modernity of language, taking the concepts of Place, Social Capital and Learning together with the vital connecting conjunctions of And, to define its mission. At the heart of the story is PASCAL's experience of working with multiple regions and their universities on their experience with engagement. The book examines in turn several central strands mainly of policy but also of process that are illuminated by the PASCAL Universities and Regional Engagement (PURE) project. The PURE processes and outcomes, despite limitations and severe disruption by forces located outside the region and often too the nation, show the potential gain from international networking and shared activities. The book also discusses internal arrangements within the administration before turning to external relations: both with the university and tertiary sector and with other stakeholders in the private and third sectors. Regional innovation systems require entrepreneurialism inside government, higher education and training, as well as within industry from small and medium enterprises to multinationals.

13 Engaging horizontally – leading, partnering, learning H ow can regional administrations make engagement with others in their regions more productive and effective? Having discussed in Chapter 12 the impact of national governments on engagement between HEIs and their regions previously, this chapter focuses on regions before turning to individual universities and the HE sector locally. So far as regions are concerned, we discuss internal arrangements within the administration before turning to external relations: both with the university and tertiary sector

place in early modern political and legal thought. As I shall demonstrate, the concept of political friendship was rearticulated in theories of the internal arrangement of and relations between political communities. This casts a new light on the political and social order at the dawn of the sovereign state and modern international regimes. The ‘Aristotelian’ idea of friendship ‘in a political sense’, or friendship as a basic agreement about the nature of a polity and co-existence, is an easily identifiable trope in Humanist discourses on the constitution of polities

section of this chapter with an attentive analysis of their internal arrangements – spatial structures, divisions and organisation – conforming to the selection, separation and disinfection of persons, merchandise, animals and mail passing through quarantine. It immediately becomes evident that the most vital zone and apparatus in the entire quarantine process was the disinfection of everyone and everything crossing the border. The chapter continues with a section which deals specifically with the various expurgation operations conducted in these lazarettos, analysing

complimentary fronts: the political, economic and social institutions of Northern Ireland must be reformed … At the same time, harmonisation of policies in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland is essential. The conflict cannot be ended simply through changes in internal arrangements in Northern Ireland. There must 224 Melinda Sutton be an all-Ireland dimension. This paper spells out a practical basis for harmonisation which will both extend the rights and improve the conditions of people in both traditions in Northern Ireland and, at the same time, help progress

interviews with Labour leaders, politicians, party staff and other major protagonists. The reform of Labour’s constitutional and organisational structures in this period marked the first major change to the party’s internal arrangements since 1918. Significantly, the settlement achieved by 1997 remained unaltered during New Labour’s entire period of office until 2010. Labour’s modernisation was also catalysed by a variety of external factors which influenced the party’s internal struggles. These enabling events involved challenges to Labour’s electability, principally

sustaining readers and audiences. External relations with audiences were mirrored by internal arrangements in the way that workshops were conducted. Debates over organisational form would be analogous to those surrounding the changing nature of audiences. The ways in which ‘grass-roots’ writers and readers were sustained through inclusive forms of organisation became a vexed issue in the Fed. Indeed, the effects of transforming workshops into service delivery vehicles sparked another set of debates that had further implications for understanding social change.

associated with merchant owners, although unlike the cases above that is presumed on the basis of internal arrangement (Murtagh, 1988 ). Merchant-held tower houses need not have been exclusively urban in location. Documentation attests to merchants acquiring land in the country, this possibly accelerating over the course of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The evidence collected for this study contrasts with Bradshaw's conclusions on the impact of the Dissolution of the Monasteries on mercantile landholding in Ireland. He stated only one

-Irish Agreement was also significant in formally binding the Irish Government to inter-state cooperation, implying acceptance of the existing order (Arthur, 2000: 231). However, the Anglo-Irish Agreement served to make unionists come to terms eventually with the Irish dimension in a framework for a political solution. Out of the Anglo-Irish Agreement came the broad acceptance of the three-stranded approach which was to be developed in future political discussions; firstly, the internal arrangements for BDR09.indd 171 3/23/2009 4:12:49 PM 172 Direct rule and the governance
