INQAAHE's Global Study, Global Trends in Higher Education Quality Assurance: Challenges and Opportunities in Internal and External Quality Assurance, has just been published by Brill|Sense publishing house.
The INQAAHE Global Study, the result of a three-year intensive research led by INQAAHE, is the first endeavor to explore the trends, challenges and opportunities in tertiary education quality assurance globally. The study, authored by Susanna Karakhanyan and Bjørn Stensaker, was made possible purely through voluntary contribution of the tertiary education community worldwide under the lead of INQAAHE and with the invaluable support of regional networks, quality assurance bodies, and quality assurance experts. Indeed, each and every author contributing to the global and regional studies merits special gratitude for their priceless contribution to the study.
