    Abstract

    Book synopsis: How is policy made in higher education, particularly in the wake of recent economic turbulence? Has policy development converged internationally, and if so, what impact has this had on academic life and institutions? What role does policy-oriented research play in shaping the direction of higher education? Are universities grappling in common ways with issues of access and equity? Making Policy in Turbulent Times provides a historically informed and nuanced response to these and other questions. Distinguished scholars and administrators from across the globe identify economic challenges and pressures facing universities, compare policy developments in numerous jurisdictions, and demonstrate the ways in which networks and lobbyists achieve results. Cogently argued, Making Policy in Turbulent Times contributes significantly to new research, and will be of great interest to scholars and practitioners alike.
