Higher education policies have been shaped by various waves of student mobilization. Looking at recent waves of protest with different outcomes in four countries – Quebec, Chile, Italy and England – this book embeds these movements within a broader concept of student politics, looking at movement but also non-movement dynamics. These four cases explored cover different higher education systems, from those in which the role of the state is still prominent (Italy, Quebec) to others in which the market has acquired greater relevance over the last decades (England, Chile). The book’s main argument is that to understand the capacity of social movements to influence the policy-making process, we must look at the triangle formed by movements, political parties and public opinion.
