Governance of higher education

Huisman, J. (Ed.) International Perspectives on the Governance of Higher Education. Alternative Frameworks for Coordination. Routledge, 2009. ISBN: 978-0-415-98933-6. Pages: 304. This publication analyses how the governance of higher education systems has evolved in recent years and how the use of disciplinary approaches and frameworks, particularly from political science, public administration and public policy helps us understand better the coordination of higher education systems. The volume looks at:
  • The role of government, market and network steering in higher education systems.
  • Governance in the knowledge society.
  • How the use of disciplinary approaches help to better understand the steering policy processes and outcomes in higher education.
  • Empirical studies exploring governance issues across systems and over time, within systems.
