Themes addressed in this book include the following: · The implications of contemporary global migration patterns for higher education · The implications of the increasing proportion of older age cohorts in the populations of most developed countries (the ‘longevity dividend’); · Conversely, in some developing countries what are the implications of growing proportions of younger populations (the ‘demographic dividend’)? What are the consequences of such demographic changes for the labor market and associated knowledge and skill requirements? To what extent might some demographic developments lead to a shrinking higher education landscape – in terms of numbers of institutions and/or range and scale of provision? What are the consequences of these trends for finance, governance and management strategies of higher education institutions? Addressing the above questions requires genuinely interdisciplinary responses. The authors therefore draw on comparative policy studies, pedagogy, sociology, economics, technology, demography, history and law. In addition to bringing new conceptual approaches to these important issues, and associated critical policy analysis, the book also includes examples of innovative responses from a range of countries and institutions. 04 02 Part 1: New Demographics and Lifelong Learning.- Chapter 1.
