The Modernisation of European Universities: Cross-National Academic Perspectives. Higher Education Research and Policy. Volume 1
Kwiek, Marek, Ed.; Kurkiewicz, Andrzej, Ed.
Peter Lang Frankfurt
The recent decade brought about new ways of thinking about universities. European-level educational policies became increasingly influential as the agenda of university reforms was viewed as part of greater Lisbon strategy reforms. National governments adopted the economic concept of the university consistently developed in subsequent official documents of the European Commission. The EU member states currently need to balance their educational policies between the requirements of policies promoted by the EU and the requirements of their national systems. Additionally, the national educational policies are under high pressure due to globalisation. European universities and European academics operate in the midst of these large-scale changes. Their interpretations of and their responses to what is termed "the modernisation agenda of European universities" are at the core of this volume. Contents include: (1) Preface (Barbara Kudrycka); (2) Foreword and Message (Jan Truszczynski); (3) Academic Responses to the Modernisation Agenda of European Universities (Andrzej Kurkiewicz and Marek Kwiek); (4) The Growing Complexity of the Academic Enterprise in Europe: A Panoramic View (Marek Kwiek); (5) People and Their Ideas: The Foundation for Inclusive European Growth (Maria Helena Nazare); (6) System Diversity in European Higher Education (Peter Maassen); (7) External and Internal Sources of financing for Universities.
