Gibbs, Paul – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Although there has been considerable debate in contemporary literature on the erosion of the public good in higher education, most of it has been concentrated on the word 'public' rather than on the notion of 'good'. Further, the idea of higher education and the organisations for its delivery have become conflated through a focus on the 'good' as…

This article has two aims. First, it is concerned with a discourse in British media and politics of "Muslim education", a concept that often appears alongside words such as "extremism" and "radicalisation" and contributes to the undue "religification" of people of Muslim backgrounds. I offer a preliminary…
