My intention is to explore the possibilities of communitarian liberalism within the restructuring of higher education in an era of globalisation. Globalisation is an essentially contested term that is often read as embracing notions of atomistic liberalism, including a preference for the market and the entrepreneurial (individualist) self. In this article I argue, firstly, that restructuring higher education in an era of globalisation does engender possibilities for communitarian liberalism and, secondly, that communitarian liberalism can contribute towards deepening democracy at higher education institutions.
