Record type: Book Section


HE policy varies enormously between countries, manifesting itself in a broad spectrum of provision and reflecting wide political and economic disparity. In some countries, policy is driven solely by economic imperatives; in others, by tradition and culture. In Europe, systemic diversity is decreasing as social and political interdependence grows; in other areas, like the developing markets of Asia, diversity of provision is increasing in line with economic growth. Everywhere, HE has become so important to the development of knowledge economies that policy in relation to it has become more directive, more encouraging of the practical and commercial exploitation of research, and more accountable.
