Out Now - SRHE News Issue 27 - January 2017
Extract from editorial
Post-Truth and the Higher Education and Research Bill
This issue of SRHE News was being finalised just as the Higher Education and Research Bill (HERB) began its Committee stage in the House of Lords. With 500 amendments tabled for line-by-line scrutiny, six days were set aside through to 25 January 2017, but on the first day, 9 January, only one amendment was considered.
It was however a pivotal proposal, about the nature and purpose of universities, with the rarity of being taken to a vote for the first time since 2012 (on a health bill) that there had been a vote at this stage in the Lords. Debate is likely to be both heated and confused, because the Bill embodies two key contradictions - between centralised control and free market forces, and between two very different appeals to legitimacy: emotion and personal belief, or evidence.
