LEAD Book published!

The LEAD Book on University Governance and Academic Leadership in the EU and China is published. 

The LEAD book, with 19 chapters, contributed by both European and Chinese scholars, is published by IGI global.

The book has three major sections: university governance and academic leadership in China, university governance and academic leadership in Europe, and perspectives in terms of EU-China collaboration. The first section of the book focuses on university governance and academic leadership in Chinese higher education and contains six chapters.

The book is unique in terms of integrating theory, research, and practices in a coherent way. To achieve this aim, we have accordingly decided to include three different types of papers: theory-based, research-based, and case-based.

The book integrated contributions from current and former academic leaders, academic staff members and students, researchers, administrative staff with managerial and non-managerial roles from diverse higher education systems and institutions to provide insights into the perspectives of various important stakeholders, and to show how academic leadership is displayed and perceived at different hierarchical levels within the university structure.
