World Bank rethinks higher education

2 November 2001

The World Bank sent a delegation to UNESCO‘s conference on higher education in Paris in October, led by Maris O’Rouke, Director of the Human Development Network Education Group. Three strategy papers were prepared by the Bank for the conference – The Financing and Management of Higher Education: A Status Report, Higher Education Relevance in the 21st Century and Quality Assurance in Higher Education. The Bank has also produced a brochure, The World Bank and Tertiary Education, detailing its involvement in tertiary education in borrower countries and outlining its policies on higher education funding.
