The Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) would like to extend a warm welcome to all those with an interest in higher education research to the Society's international annual research conference. 

The theme for SRHE Conference 2016, on which the keynotes will focus,is an exploration of issues around freedom and control in global higher education. As higher education has expanded and internationalised, it has become the site for collaboration and debate, contestation and struggle over resources,reforms, access equity and more. This has opened up new opportunities for providing education, pursuing research and developing careers, but it has also closed down options and raised barriers, provoking opposition in some quarters.

What are the implications of this tension between freedom and control for those studying, working, managing and leading in higher education? What are the key points of challenge, and what possibilities are created? 

The annual SRHE Conference provides a stimulating international forum for papers of an empirical or scholarly nature relating to research into higher education in the widest sense and from a breadth of different disciplinary perspectives. The conference is highly participative, promoting the dissemination and exchange of ideas in a variety of formats, across a range of research domains.
