Higher Education Policy and the Robbins Report (1961-1963)
11th June @ 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm
Our June Open Research Forum is presented by Josh Patel, University of Warwick.
The expansion of higher education following the ‘Robbins Report’ (1963) is rightly regarded as a premier achievement of the welfare state. However, a rereading the report illuminates hints of a pervasive liberal economic thought throughout the Report.
The political philosophies of welfarism and liberalism, rarely perceived as allies, mutually supported one another in the report’s recommendations.
