JUARROS, Fernanda  y  NAIDORF, Judith. University models en pugna: democratization or mercantilizacion of the university and of public knowledge in Argentina. Avaliação (Campinas) [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.3, pp.483-504. ISSN 1982-5765.

The changes that occurred in the Argentine university system are connected to the neoliberal economic model which was reinforced in the 90s. Since then, the universities adapted their activities to a new culture of interaction with the productive sector in search of competitiveness. In this context, we locate two speeches: one affirms the trend of democratizing public spaces and free knowledge; and the other, the trend to commercialize knowledge. Both circulate in the university today in strongly antagonistic positions that correspond with two different university models.

Palabras clave : Higher Education Democratization; Commercialization of higher education; university models.
