The development of\ud university ranking systems has encouraged this competitive game. The relevance of university\ud rankings is discussed. The paper concludes with a\ud reflection on why, despite their apparent importance as capital these international and national\ud rankings are predominantly absent from the alliances’ websites. These explorations provide\ud an insight into the complex games universities play in order to collaborate and to compete for\ud government, private and research funding and for staff and students
