Abstract

This chapter traces the contextual and discursive dynamics that have shaped higher education and training policy formation in the period of 1990 to 2001. Although this was a period of significant policy and discursive contestation, much of the differences in position on higher education and training were muted by the consensual politics of early 1990s.
