Synopsis

The book studies transformations of European universities in the context of globalization and Europeanization, the questioning of the foundations of the "Golden Age" of the Keynesian welfare state, public sector reforms, demographic changes, the massification and diversification of higher education, and the emergence of knowledge economies. Such phenomena as academic entrepreneurialism and diversified channels of knowledge exchange in European universities are linked to transformations of the state and changes in public sector services. The first, contextual part of the book studies the changing state/university relationships, and the second, empirically-informed part draws from several recent large-scale comparative European research projects.

Marek Kwiek, Professor and Director, Center for Public Policy Studies, and Chairholder, UNESCO Chair in Institutional Research and Higher Education Policy, University of Poznan (Poland). His previous books include The University and the State. A Study into Global Transformations (2006).
