Student Power in a Global Perspective and Contemporary Trends in Student Organising
Klemencic, Manja
Studies in Higher Education, v39 n3 p396-411 2014
Students, if organised into representative student governments or movements, can be a highly influential agency shaping higher education policy. This article introduces the Special Issue on student power in a global perspective, which addresses the question of how students are organised in different world regions and what role they play in higher education policymaking within universities or at the national level. The article discusses conceptual considerations in the study of student governments and movements and reviews the contemporary trends in student organising globally.
