European Universities and the Challenge of the Market. A Comparative Analysis

Regini, M. (Ed). European Universities and the Challenge of the Market. A Comparative Analysis. Edward Elgar Publishing, Cheltenham, UK/Northampton, 2011. ISBN: 978-1-8490-403-5. Pages: 231.

This book by a team of Italian scholars of the University of Milan focuses on the changes in the degree of openness of European higher education systems to their economic context on the one hand, and the degree of attention paid to higher education by economic actors on the other hand. In two parts—one making comparative analyses and the other containing six country studies on France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain and the UK—the authors address the issue of competition and the market as key drivers of developments in European higher education.
