Students in Higher Education Governance in Europe: Contrasts, Commonalities and Controversies
Pabian, Petr; Minksova, Lenka
Tertiary Education and Management, v17 n3 p261-273 2011
This article provides a synthesizing overview of the roles of students in higher education governance in Europe. We first review the existing literature on student involvement in higher education governance in order to locate the contribution of this special issue of "Tertiary Education and Management." Second, we summarize the key findings of the five articles on the selected European countries gathered in this issue. In the third part of the article, we outline the main commonalities and contrasts between the countries. Finally, we discuss the controversies surrounding student participation in higher education governance and their grounding in the competing visions of higher education.
