Abstract:The study analyses the changes of higher education governance in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) and Lithuania between 2000 and 2009. It focuses on two important steering mechanisms of funding and quality assurance. The research question is how did governance modes in the higher education systems of the German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia and Lithuania change since 2000 regarding the steering mechanisms of funding and quality assurance? The empirical evidence includes higher education laws of the North Rhine-Westphalia and Lithuania and expert interviews. The findings suggest that in both cases higher education governance is moving from a rather state regulated model towards a marketoriented model, with predominant elements of managerial self-governance and competition. This finding is in line with the general trend visible in European countries: the higher education governance systems in these two cases converge towards the lines of the market-oriented model.
