The New Politics of Australian Higher Education: Why Universities Get Rumbled in the Budget
Quiddington, Peter
Higher Education Research and Development, v29 n4 p475-487 Aug 2010
This paper questions the dominant arguments that currently frame debate over the political ineffectiveness of the higher education lobby in Australia. Public choice theory is used to advance a more complex hypothesis that takes into account dramatic changes to the political environment over recent decades. This is tested against interview data from policy actors and vice-chancellors. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
