Drawing together a team of expert contributors from across the sector to offer contemporary descriptions and critical reflection of practice in higher education, Influencing Higher Education Policy uncovers the nature of policymaking and interpretation. With a range of authors whose experiences range from governmental to academic, this book shares insights from professionals working in the field of higher education policy to provide useful, practical and implementable information.

Placing focus on professional aspects, and with practical examples bringing to light experiences, insights and recommendations across policy and public affairs, this book is divided into three sections. It covers concepts and theories for policy influence; regulation and the role of government; and institutions’ engagement with policy. Furthermore, it considers:

  • What it means to work in policy and public affairs in higher education
  • The increased complexity and fluidity of higher education politics
  • Regulatory reforms in higher education
  • The position of the student in policy discourses

Offering a contemporary representation, Influencing Higher Education Policy is an indispensable guide for all those who work in higher education, particularly those who work in communications, strategy, planning and leadership roles.
