Policy briefings

Policy briefing No.1 March 2017

This policy briefing is the first in a series of publications from the project team.

It sets out the scope of the research project and describes the South African and UK Higher Education context in which the research is located, providing insight into the different conditions in each country. It explores the key developments in Higher Education over previous decades in each context,  which have led to the crisis of the public university and the increasing commercialisation of the Higher Education sector. ‘Unbundling’ and ‘marketisation’, as they are understood by the project team, are considered and the role that technological innovation plays in these phenomena is discussed. The briefing also sets out the research questions for this project.
