  • Description:

    Neoliberalism and its impact on public goods like education is a global process. In this presentation, we focus on insights from working in higher education institutions in Africa and the Middle East. The panel will discuss how the processes of neoliberalism and fiscal austerity have impacted academic life within these institutions. The presenters will reflect on how their cases are similar or different from each other and from the United States, but also on the difference in reaction to conditions both by students and faculty.


    The Friday Forum provides a venue for MSU faculty, staff, students and administrators to discuss the transformation of public higher education through the imposition of market logic and relations.
