dc.description.abstractThis article addresses the relationship of universities to their changing regulatory environments internationally. This article updates analysis published in 2004 exploring the contrasting modes of, and key trends in, regulation of higher education across eight OECD states. The article offers a wider analysis the changing patterns of regulation rooted in mutuality, oversight, competition and design and the implications for the management of higher education institutions. Since 2004, higher education has seen more growth in oversight-based and competition-based regulation, but also some decentralization of regulation as an increasing cast of actors, many international and transnational in character, have asserted themselves in key aspects of the regulatory environment. This article explores the implications of these changes in the regulatory mix over higher education for the ways that universities manage their regulatory environment, arguing first, that there is significant evidence of meta-regulatory approaches to regulating universities, and second that such a meta-regulatory approach is consistent with an emphasis on university autonomy, raising a challenge for universities in how to use the autonomy (variable by country) they do have to manage their environment. This article offers an original analysis of how universities might most appropriately respond, deploying their autonomy, however variable, to address their external regulatory environment. The author suggests we might increasingly see the external regulatory environment as meta-regulatory in character and universities making more use of reflexive governance processes.en_US
