Structure and Financing of Higher Education in Russia, Ukraine and the EU. Higher Education Policy Series 41.
Hare, Paul G., Ed.
The papers in this book discuss the goals and constraints facing institutions of higher education in Russia, Ukraine, and the European Union countries. In the European Union countries budgetary pressures and the increasing number of students attending institutions of higher education have resulted in serious financial difficulties for many institutions, which in turn have given rise to attempts to assess the quality and quantity of educational "output." In Russia and Ukraine, higher education reforms are being attempted in an unfavorable macroeconomic climate, with the added institutional complication of separating research and teaching functions. This book explores and compares these processes both in Russia and Ukraine and in the European Union countries. Papers include: (1)"Conceptual Issues in the Analysis of Higher Education: Application to Russia and Ukraine" (Paul Hare); (2) "The Changing Nature of Higher Education in Western Europe" (Ulrich Teichler); (3) The Funding of Higher Education in the United Kingdom" (Geraint Johnes); (4) Funding of Higher Education in Germany" (Helmut Winkler); (5) "Structure and Financing of Higher Education in Russia" (Mikhail Lugachyov, Andrei Markov, Nickolai Tipenko, and Sergei Belyakov), and (6) Higher Education in Ukraine: Structure and Financing" (Vladimir Savchuk, Peter Luzik, Ivan Gal, and Valery Oparin).
