ROPS Special Thematic Issue: Neo-Nationalism and Universities Updates

Editor's Note

Since the publication of Neo-Nationalism and Universities: Populists, Autocrats, and the Future of Higher Education(link is external) (Johns Hopkins University Press, Open Access), national and geopolitical events continue to pose challenges for universities, including Putin’s war on Ukraine, increased autocratic control in many parts of the world, a rising tide of neo-nationalist parties and politicians, and now the tragic eruption of the Israeli-Hamas war. In light of these and other political and economic developments, we asked selected chapter contributors to offer the following brief updates to their case studies on Russia, China, Eastern Europe, and the US. Authors are responsible for the content, and the views and interpretations expressed are not necessarily those of CSHE's research staff and affiliated researchers.
