Rent-Seeking and Ex Post Acceptance of Reforms in Higher Education

Abstract

Resistance to reduced government intervention in the management of higher education institutions is commonly observed in Continental Europe. We offer a theoretical argument to describe how rent seeking through ex-ante fierce resistance to reform in tertiary education is compatible with a widespread ex-post adoption of reforms which liberate universities from suffocating state control.
