Abstract

Sinds de Middeleeuwen heeft de universiteit vele veranderingen succesvol doorstaan. Maar het hele landschap van het hoger onderwijs is de afgelopen decennia zo snel en ingrijpend in beweging gekomen – onder andere met de opkomst van online learning, MOOC’s en rankings – dat de uitgangspunten van de universiteit nu opnieuw doordacht moeten worden.

Als rector magnificus van de Universiteit Utrecht heeft Bert van der Zwaan met tal van collega’s in Azië, Europa en Noord-Amerika gesproken over de ontwikkelingen binnen de stelsels van hoger onderwijs in hun land. Op basis van die gesprekken exploreert hij de toekomst van het hoger onderwijs, met als kernvraag: haalt de universiteit 2040?

Abstract

Public debates tend to see social inequality as resulting from individual decisions people make, for instance with respect to their education or lifestyle. Solutions are often sought in supporting individuals to make better choices. This neglects the importance of social groups and communities in determining individual outcomes. A moral perspective on social inequality questions the fairness of insisting on individual responsibilities, when members of some groups systematically receive fewer opportunities than others. The essays in this book have been prepared by experts from different disciplines, ranging from philosophy to engineering, and from economics to epidemiology. On the basis of recent scientific insights, World of Difference examines how group memberships impact on individual outcomes in four key domains: health, education and work, migration, and the environment. This offers a new moral perspective on social inequality, which policy makers tend to neglect.
