Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

There is a need for tools to enhance transparency in the higher education system. This chapter focuses on three groups of transparency tools, that is: (1) accreditation; (2) global rankings; and (3) performance contracts. We interpret these tools from the perspective of governance, using three different governance paradigms.
