Professor Jenny Ozga is one of 8 Oxford professors and 59 academics elected into the British Academy at its Annual General Meeting on 18th July.

The new fellows have been recognised for their outstanding research and work across the humanities and social sciences. This is a real achievement for Jenny and a huge boost for her research programme.

Jenny’s main research area is education policy in international comparative contexts, with a current focus on governance and governing. This is developing through investigation of the resources that are being mobilised by new governing forms (networks) and through new policy technologies (data). Jenny seeks to develop theory and empirical investigation in these areas, in collaboration with colleagues in the UK and Europe, and in a variety of disciplines, including political science and social policy. Her most recent funded project, which started in spring 2010, is the ESRC-funded ‘Governing by Inspection: School Inspection and Education Governance in Scotland, England and Sweden.
