How are governments and universities responding to the challenge of a global market in higher education?
As higher education opens up to world markets and the World Trade Organization turns its attention towards universities, quality, accreditation and qualifications are becoming issues of major concern to universities leaders, governments, students and parents. What are the possibilities of dealing with these burning issues in a concerted way? What are national and regional authorities doing to tackle what promises to be the most important issue since the development of mass higher education?
Drawing on contributions from scholars, leaders and practitioners from the major multilateral and non-governmental organizations active in higher education, this book examines how far an international framework in quality assurance and accreditation may be envisaged and what are its limitations.
