Glion Colloquium series, Vol. 2 Economica, London, Paris, Geneva, 2001

The fourteen contributions assembled in this book examine the contours and dimensions of university governance in research-intensive universities, seek to develop cogent governance principles and offer appropriate initiatives and recommendations.

The authors, who met for the second “Glion Colloquium” in January 2000 in Del Mar, California, are heads of leading research-intensive universities in Western Europe and in the United States, some active, some recently retired, as well as recognized higher education scholars. They ail share the defining concern that the fondamental changes, which characterize the present period, pose most serious challenges for universities and their systems of governance.
