Assembling and Governing the Higher Education Institution : Democracy, Social Justice and Leadership in Global Higher Education Hardback
Edited by Lynette Shultz, Melody Viczko
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Global Citizenship Education and Democracy series
This book emphasizes the inherently democratic nature of education; from those who practice in higher education institutions and are involved in decision-making, to those questioning the methods of reform processes in those institutions.
As they are faced with increasing pressures to restructure and change their organizations in line with global institutional demands the foundations upon which their leadership and governance are based are called into question.
This book takes a critical approach to understanding higher education leadership and governance.
The overarching questions asked in this book are: how has higher education come to be assembled in contemporary governance practices within the context of global demands for reform and how are issues of justice being taken up as part of and in resistance to this assemblage?
