We are embarrassed that we missed out on this publication when it first appeared in February 2018. But even more than half a year later, we find it too important not to report on it.
This publication was edited by Aline Courtois of the Centre for Global Higher Education at UCL. As its title says, it looks at the implications of the Brexit in the field of higher education. The authors of its, mainly country-based chapters, read like a Who’s who in European higher education. Among them are Ellen Hazelkorn, Marijk van der Wende, Peter Maassen, to mention but some. The book contains a foreword by Simon Marginson, Susan Wright and Marijk van der Wende and a general Introduction by the editor.
The editor, Dr Courtois, summed up the findings like this: “The report highlights that Brexit is not an issue for UK higher education only. It creates uncertainty for other countries as well, with fears that research cooperation and academic mobility will be severely affected across the EU and that the region as a whole will lose its competitive edge. The exact impact of Brexit on the higher education sector, in the UK and beyond, is still largely unknown; some countries may benefit in the short term in certain ways, but overall it is perceived as a significant risk.”For more information
