Abstract


This book presents a benchmark, comparative analysis of institutional university autonomy in Denmark, Lithuania, Romania, Scotland and Sweden. These countries are partners in a EU TEMPUS funded project 'Enhancing University Autonomy in Moldova' (EUniAM).

This benchmark analysis was conducted by the EUniAM Lead Task Force team that collected and analysed secondary and primary data in each of these countries and produced four benchmark reports that are part of this book.

For each dimension and interface of institutional university autonomy, the members of the Lead Task Force team identified respective evaluation criteria and searched for similarities and differences in approaches to higher education sectors and respective autonomy regimes in these countries.

The consolidated report that precedes the benchmark reports summarises the process and key findings from the four benchmark reports. Specifically, it presents (i) the methodology and methods employed for data collection and data analysis; (ii) the comparative analysis of higher education sectors and respective education systems in these countries; and (iii) the executive summaries of the benchmark reports and key emerging patterns.

The entire EUniAM project team would like to acknowledge warm welcome and invaluable inputs from the colleagues the EUniAM Lead Task Force team met during their visits to Denmark, Lithuania, Romania, Scotland, and Sweden. Without their firm support, this benchmark analysis would not have been that successful.
