Abstract

The 2014 Higher Education Law in Ukraine provided for greater fiscal autonomy for universities. This article treats three issues:
- the concept of the autonomous university, particularly in relations with the state and its agencies
- the impact of factors in the wider context on internal cultures of universities and degrees of autonomy in action
- the nature of leadership in different cultures.
It was stimulated by involvement in ELITE, a TEMPUS-funded programme aiming, among other things, to help establish centres for leadership development in a number of Ukrainian institutions. It draws on a number of research projects conducted by the first author.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: I have claimed refereed status. It is something we stressed to the Ukrainian team and the editorial board, but...I guarantee nothing. It is dated 2015, but did not appear until 2016. The 'date' entered is false. All emails detailing contacts disappeared when the system was upgraded, so I have no record of the delight of the editor/project leader at getting it. The second author did very little.
