Dieser Band fasst wichtige Beiträge zu einer internationalen Konferenz zusammen, die im Herbst 2002 aus Anlass des 60. Geburtstages von Ulrich Teichler in Kassel stattfand.
Higher education reforms in the recent years have gone further in the direction of a growing complexity in systems configuration. Among the features of the shift towards stronger market orientation is a mixture of convergence and differentiation. Therefore, concerns about quality and equity in the face of an increasingly vertical differentiation of higher education form one of the four major topics of this volume. Others are the question of academic capitalism in research and research training under conditions of new managerial approaches and changes in the structure of studies and degrees according to new study models. Acquisition of qualifications and competencies for transition into the labour market and their utilization in employment was and continous to be high on the agenda of higher education research and policy. The volume closes with an overarching view on global trends in higher education and formulates a historical critique.
