Just published: Access and Expansion Post-Massification, edited by Ben Jongbloed and Hans Vossensteyn
The question of access to higher education is undoubtedly the foremost policy issue in higher education. This volume treats that issue by means of a broad range of chapters, written by experienced researchers that offer insights, national strategies and policy examples from around the world. The book presents the drivers of higher education expansion and examines government policy as both a response to increasing demand for higher education and as one of the forces that has helped to encourage expansion. The eleven chapters in the book represent a rich mix of analytical themes and empirically-focused chapters that encompass a wide array of national/regional systems – ranging from the US and Canada to Europe and Asia. The book is part of the series “International Studies in Higher Education”, published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis. A short description of its contents can be found here.
