Edited volume "Global Challenges, Local Responses in Higher Education" now available

14 April 2014

The book "Global Challenges, Local Responses in Higher Education. The Contemporary Issues in National and Comparative Perspective," comprising a selection of papers from the CHER 2012 conference (CEP Belgrade & CEPS Ljubljana), is now out of print. 

The volume offers state-of-the art contributions in the intersection of academic profession, research training and institutional governance. They reflect the profound interest of contemporary researchers in the questions of how the contemporary higher education reforms across Europe affect university governance and especially 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; hence, attempting to rebalance the European profile of higher education research and at the same time contribute to the most salient debates in the field.

This book confirms, once again, that the higher education research landscape is a diverse and rich one. At the same time, these diverse cases have at least one commonality – the fact that even though they are located in different higher education systems, they address issues that, albeit as a rule context-specific, can be found in all parts of Europe and beyond. Certainly, the local responses to the hereby addressed global challenges represent a mere snapshot of a broader landscape the European higher education dynamics is. Temporary higher education reforms across Europe affect university governance and especially 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; hence, attempting to rebalance the European profile of higher education research and at the same time contribute to the most salient debates in the field. 

The book has been edited by Jelena Branković (Ghent University, Belgium & Centre for Education Policy, Serbia), Manja Klemenčić (Harvard University, United States of America), Predrag Lažetić (Centre for Education Policy, Serbia & University of Bath, United Kingdom) and Pavel Zgaga (University of Ljubljana, Slovenia).

Introduction and Chapter 1 can be freely previewed on the Sense Publishers website.
