Description
‘. . . the Handbook constitutes an essential reference source for everyone interested in studying the current meaning, scope and implications of globalization. Strongly recommended.’

Further information

‘With 29 well-researched articles written by 31 erudite scholars of high repute drawn from various parts of the world, specifically for the book, the Handbook filled with intellectual ammunition provides an excellent reading on a multiplicity of issues relating to globalisation and higher education. The volume provides diversity of interpretation of several trends. Unlike many other books, the issues are studied not just from the point of view of a few advanced countries; the Handbook includes experiences of many developing countries. . . The Handbook would certainly be a great resource material for students, teachers and policy makers engaged in higher education.’
– Jandhyala B.G. Tilak, Journal of Educational Planning and Administration

– Higher Education Review

Higher education has entered centre-stage in the context of the knowledge economy and has been deployed in the search for economic competitiveness and social development. Against this backdrop, this highly illuminating Handbook explores worldwide convergences and divergences in national higher education systems resulting from increased global co-operation and competition.

The expert contributors reveal the strategies, practices and governance mechanisms developed by international and regional organizations, national governments and by higher education institutions themselves. They analyse local responses to dominant global templates of higher education and the consequences for knowledge generation, social equity, economic development and the public good.

This comprehensive and accessible Handbook will prove an invaluable reference tool for researchers, academics and students with an interest in higher education from economics, international studies and public policy perspectives, as well as for higher education policymakers, and funding and governance bodies.
