Higher Education in the New Century - Global Challenges and Innovative Ideas

ABOUT THE UNESCO FORUM ON HIGHER EDUCATION RESEARCH, AND KNOWLEDGE

Publication of this book has involved a partnership with the UNESCO Forum on Higher Education ,Research ,and Knowledge ,which focuses on the role and status of national research systems and international trends in this domain in relation to the challenges posed by the knowledge society of the 21st century.

 

 

Located at UNESCO and supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA),the UNESCO Forum provides a platform for researchers ,policymakers ,and relevant stakeholders to engage critically with the key elements underpinning research systems :policy trends ,infrastructure ,human capacity ,and investment .

Since 2001 ,the UNESCO Forum has consolidated its efforts to bridge research and policy in a number of ways -facilitating and broadening the space for critical debate and revisting the established and dominant views so as to reconceptualize future directions .

The Forum seeks to attain these goals through mobilizing experts, stimulating global and regional debate ,producing and disseminating research ,promoting strategic partnerships, facilitating communication, and strengthening the systemic approach. The UNESCO Forum believes that it is central to reaffirm the importance of research at the current moment given the rapid developments since 2000 in knowledge production and management and their ramifications for social change and progress.
