Jelena Brankovic, Manja Klemencic, Predrag Lazetic and Pavel Zgaga (Eds.). Global Challenges, Local Responses in Higher Education: The Contemporary Issues in National and Comparative Perspective. Sense Publishers. 2014. Pages: 250
The volume offers state-of-the art contributions at the intersection of academic profession, research training and institutional governance. Authors look into the questions of how the contemporary higher education reforms across Europe affect university governance and particularly the roles and functions of academics. The volume includes several contributions from the peripheral and developing higher education systems of Central and South-East Europe, attempting to rebalance the European profile of higher education research and at the same time to contribute to the most salient debates in the field.
