n South African Journal of Higher Education - Accounting for change : the micropolitics of university restructuring. Part three : global pressures, local responses

Volume 15, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1011-3487



In this third and final article on ``the micropolitics of university restructuring'', the links are drawn between globalisation pressures on the third world state and the ways in which higher education institutions are affected in the same ways by the state and globalisation, given the very different histories, capacities and ideologies of universities even within the same country. But the case study of the University of Durban Westville (UDW) also demonstrates that the quality of organisational leadership is a critical variable not only in shaping institutional micropolitics but in affecting the capacity of universities to respond to the relentless demands of the state under conditions of globalisation.
