Students as Stakeholders in Quality Assurance in Eight European Countries
Leisyte, Liudvika; Westerheijden, Don F.
Quality of Higher Education, v10 p12-27 2013
How are stakeholders represented in higher education institutions' decision-making bodies that influence the quality of education, and are their viewpoints taken into account? This paper addresses this question taking into account the empirical evidence from eight countries in Europe. Findings indicate that formal barriers are largely absent, that stakeholder influence has grown somewhat over recent years, but that actual influence of stakeholders can be further optimised in higher education institutions.
