LEITE, Denise  y  GENRO, Maria Elly Herz. Evaluation and internationalization of higher education: Quo vadis Latin America?. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.3, pp.763-785. ISSN 1414-4077.

This paper discuss the themes of evaluation, accreditation and internationalization of higher education institutions of Latin America and Caribbean. The canons of globalization and commodification of higher education, contexts in which are established policies for evaluation, are discussed. The relations between the concepts of hegemony, imperialism and neoliberal globalization that sustain their understanding are also presented. Next, raises evidence of a ' practice ' of a new imperialism, benevolent imperialism, that is producing the strategies of the Bologna process with a view to the formation of a common area of higher education formed by Latin America, Caribbean and European Union. There are actors that sustain these hegemonic interests. The existence of their actions in the induction of inter-agency relations, accreditation and evaluation agency networks, between projects for the establishment of global institutional indicators that implies procedures for internationalization of higher education institutions are showed. In the end, it argues that policies have consequences on the higher education future in Latin America and Caribbean because they generate new types of institutions and induce the formation of values that can deny the public space and the reinvention of democratic subjectivities.
