Decades of expansion in European higher education have led to the need
to cater to an increasingly diverse student population in a more
economical and efficient way. The realities of mass higher education
have resulted in major transformations, with visible changes in the
modes and instruments of regulation and a greater emphasis on market
forces and institutional competition. In this article we reflect about
the relevance of those changes from a regional point of view, especially
by looking at the public-private mix of higher education and the way
those regulatory changes may have influenced patterns of spatial and
programmatic diversification across a sample of European countries. ©
