World-class systems rather than world-class universities

By Rajani Naidoo. Equality in higher education is a global issue, particularly in relation to the current fetish for global competition. There is a blind faith that competition in all areas of higher education will automatically lead to positive outcomes, including greater equality. However, in general different types of competition interact to create major barriers to enhancing equality. More...

Nations join emerging multi-polar global science system

By Yojana Sharma. Research-intensive universities now operate as a single network on a world scale with more and more nations entering this open system particularly built around science research.

Global Universities: Sowing the Seeds of the Future, or Hanging On To The Past?

Global Universities: Sowing the Seeds of the Future, or Hanging On To The Past?
The author concludes, "Universities that hang on to an elitist concept of higher education are unlikely to be those that can successfully sow the seeds of a future of mass access, providing millions of people with the intellectual and employment opportunities they are currently denied," and thereby possibly explains some of the difficulties encountered by such enterprises as Universitas 21 (documented recently in OLDaily).

22-L’Espace européen de l’enseignement supérieur dans un univers globalisé

La globalisation de l’enseignement supérieur est aujourd’hui une incontestable réalité. D’une part parce que la mobilité étudiante n’a cessé d’augmenter depuis le début du siècle et d’autre part parce qu’un nombre toujours croissant de pays s’efforce de développer un système national d’enseignement supérieur performant et attractif à l’international. Cet accroissement de la mobilité s’accompagne d’une évolution géographique des flux entre pays et régions du monde (cf. les mobilités toujours plus fortes d’étudiants européens ou américains vers la Chine par exemple).

For globalisation to work for all, you have to level the playing field first
