GUNI. Higher Education at a Time of Transformation: New Dynamics for Social Responsibility. Palgrave Macmillan, UK, 2009. ISBN:  9780230233379. Pages: 248.
 
The publication analyses the current and future challenges to be faced by higher education institutions (HEIs) in the context of globalisation and offers a perspective on the financing of higher education and on existing accreditation mechanisms to guarantee quality. It also examines emerging challenges and roles of higher education in relation to its contribution to human and social development. The publication is a synthesis of the three reports published so far by GUNI, exploring key issues facing higher education in the twenty-first century.

The publication was also presented at the Second UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education, held in Paris on 5-8 July.
