School of Law, The Liberty Building, University of Leeds

CELLS is pleased to announce the academic seminar ‘Higher education in the EU – how to achieve more diversity in an age of commercialisation’ on 27 February 2013.

European higher education institutions (HEIs) have increasingly moved towards commodification in the last decades. The seminar aims to investigate the consequence of this, in particular as regards diversity in teaching and research.

Stine Jørgensen will give insights from an EU law perspective, while Liudvika Leišyte will offer a sociological perspective on directions of research based on case studies in the Netherlands.

Stine Jørgensen works as an associate professor in social security and social welfare rights at the University of Copenhagen.

Dr. Liudvika Leišyte

Liudvika Leišyte is a senior research fellow at the Center for Higher Education Policy Studies (CHEPS), University of Twente.
