This book asks how we can reclaim the university for the public good. The editors and contributors argue that the sector is
in crisis, accelerated by the passing of the UK Higher Education Research Act in 2017 and made visible during the University
and College Union strikes in April 2018. In response to this, there are widespread demands to reclaim the university and protect
education as a public good, using co-operative structures. Taking an interdisciplinary and social justice perspective, the
editors and contributors offer concrete examples of alternative higher education: in doing so, analysing how the future of
the university can be recovered. This intersectional volume discusses a broad range of approaches to higher education while
disseminating new ideas. It will be of interest and value to those disenchanted with the current state of higher education
in the UK and beyond, as well as activists and policy makers.
