abstract = "What role should students take in shaping their education, their university, and the wider society? These questions have assumed new importance in recent years as universities are reformed to become competitive in the “global knowledge economy.” With Denmark as the prism, this book shows how negotiations over student participation — influenced by demands for efficiency, flexibility, and student-centered education — reflect wider concerns about democracy and citizen participation in increasingly neoliberalised states. Combining anthropological and historical research, the author develops a novel approach to studying policy processes and opens a timely discussion to reflect on and question the kinds of future citizens who will emerge from current reforms.",
