The focus of this publication is on the institutional, social, and scientific changes in European higher education. Authors from more than 10 countries present their answers to some of the most challenging questions to the academic profession. Among these are: 'What are the effects of a managerial approach to higher education?' and 'Academic freedom lost or newly discovered?'
Key Challenges to the Academic Profession is the 65th issue of the INCHER series 'Werkstattberichte' and was carried out in cooperation with the UNESCO Forum on Higher Education, Research and Knowledge. The publication draws on the outcomes of an international workshop 'The Changing Academic Profession' held in September 2006 in Kassel, Germany.
