Higher education is vital to India's future, creating democratic citizens and a modern economy, building communities and cities and conducting research the country needs to continue its advance. Yet, with two thirds of people of India living in rural areas and urban incomes below the world average, in a culturally diverse country, the tragic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and profound problems of regional, social and gender inequalities, higher education faces many challenges. This book brings together experts and emerging researchers from India and the UK to discuss these issues and to explore positive solutions. The team shine the spotlight on financing and funding, governance and regulation, sector organisation and institutional classification, equity and social inclusion, the large and poorly regulated private sector, Union-State relations in higher education, student political activism, and internationalisation.

This is an important and timely collection of essays, since it comes shortly after the publication of India's National Education Policy, which has opened new possibilities of reform of its system of higher education. For Indian higher education institutions to embrace these possibilities, they need evidence and analysis, which this book provides with great clarity and considerable sophistication. * Fazal Rizvi, Professor of Global Studies in Education, University of Melbourne, Australia, and Emeritus Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA * India's National Education Policy proposals have brought higher education to the top of the policy agenda. This book provides an outstanding analysis of many of the key themes in the NEP. Its data-driven analyses are highly relevant. * Philip G. Altbach, Research Professor and Founding Director of the Center for International Higher Education, Boston College, USA * This book is an important contribution to the study of HE, bringing the scholarship of this sector in India up to date. By engaging critically with issues brought about by neoliberalism, this volume charts a path forward for the development of Indian HE. Indian policymakers would benefit from reading it. * Marie Lall, Chair in Education and South Asian Studies, UCL Institute of Education, University College London, UK *
