Academic Labour, Unemployment and Global Higher Education. Neoliberal Policies of Funding and Management

Edited by: Suman Gupta, Jernej Habjan, Hrvoje Tutek
Year: 2016


This book explores how the kinds of world-wide restructurings of higher education and research work that are underway today have not only increased employment insecurity in academia but may actually be producing unemployment. Recent and current re-organisations of higher education and research work, and re-orientations of academic life (as students, researchers, teachers) generally, which are taking place around the world, achieve exactly the opposite of what they claim: though ostensibly undertaken to facilitate employment, these moves actually produce unemployment both for those within academia and for graduate job-seekers in other sectors.
