The 2006 IMHE General Conference will focus on the challenges of managing issues involving ethics and values in higher education.
A frequent subject of debate in economic circles, these two notions have been brought into greater prominence by the shifting environment and the changes under way in higher education. Rapid changes in technologies, research and the role of higher education in society raise a range of issues which concern complex concepts of freedom, responsibility, truth, control, limits and which have practical implications for governance, policy and management of higher education institutions.
The 2006 Conference will provide a forum for participants to explore these issues in concrete terms, informed by current research and practice.
