Governance in Greek higher education from a comparative perspective

Pantelis Kiprianos, Vangelis Politis Stergiou


After the 1980s, significant changes were noted in the governance of H.E. in many western countries.  From a shared model which was predominant internationally but with national particularities, we moved to a managerial model which is characterized by the withdrawal of the state, a greater opening up to the market and a reduction in the participation of the academic community.  In Greek H.E. the development is somewhat different.  In the 1980s the model of shared governance was introduced.  In recent years, more and more of the main principles of the managerial model are being adopted. These policies, put to the test during the years of the crisis, it seems they failed. They have extremely significant consequences, which weigh down as much the operation of H.E. as the behaviours of the members of the university community, staff and graduates.
