Abstract [en]

What characterizes the regulocrats within the higher education sector in Norway andSweden? How can the regulocrats’ role be related to the development of specific instituti-onal designs within the higher education sector? These questions are answered by meansof empirical studies of regulocrats in Norway and Sweden, within the field of higher edu-cation regulation. The regulocrats are an emerging profession working in autonomoussingle purpose regulatory agencies. The profession is increasingly important to the imp-lementation of policy and regulation. There is surprisingly little empirical evidence aboutthis professional role, and the article shows that the professionalization of the regulocratsis related to the ideal of independence. The emerging profession contributes to the insti-tutional design of regulocracy or regulatory capitalism, which implies a transformation ofthe classical bureaucracy in the modern administrative state, where all (both organizations,groups and individuals) are expected to invest more in regulation, understood as monito-ring, supervision, transparency and control. Within the higher education sector, regulati-ons are perceived as important because they benefit (the individual) students and creategood conditions for making rational choices in the education market. Although the regu-locrats in Norway and Sweden share much of the same professional ideals, there are alsodifferences between the two countries. Where the Swedish regulocrats are formalistic, theNorwegian counterpart is sensitive.
