Academic Conflicts in Higher Education Institutions


  • Kseanela Sotirofski


The main aim of this study is to explore the prevalence of academic conflicts in public universities in Albania. The focus of the study is on the ideologies of academic work in regard to the purpose of higher education and higher education law requirements for their work load. The conception of academic identity conflict is predicated on the conflicting professional ideological beliefs needed to realize functions of public universities. The milestones on which the study is focused are the identity problems as a result of pressure to compose the institution, the contradictory values and beliefs and the position in the hierarchy of the institution. A survey send electronically is used to collect data for the purpose of the study. A discourse voiced by academics in this study could help connect and guide the managerial and academic arms of the university: educational principles should stand above market principles and business interests should not be allowed to determine primarily what knowledge needs to be kept, transferred or intellectually valued in higher education.
