Transforming Higher Education: A Comparative Study is the final volume of the mini-series on the International Study of Higher Education. This unique series is based upon documents, statistics and extensive interviews with politicians, institutional leaders and academics from a varied range of institutions and disciplines. This book consolidates the findings of the international research project on the radical higher education reforms since the 1970s.
Drawing together the implications of studies of Sweden, Norway and Britain in a set of comparative analyses, the authors assess the reforms of the higher education system on three distinct levels, the state, the institution and the individual. They examine change in government policy, in the leadership and management of higher education institutions and the impact on academic identities and the academic profession.
