Biography

Hans G. Schuetze holds a PhD in international and comparative public law from the University of Göttingen, Germany, and a LL.M. from the University of California at Berkeley. He worked in Germany as a lawyer, legal policy expert at two levels of government and part-time lecturer.

Between 1977 and 1986 he was a researcher and policy analyst at the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Paris. The main foci of his work were  on policies of Higher Education, vocational and professional education and training, as well the concept, organization and financing of Lifelong Learning

From 1991 to 2006 he was Professor of Higher Education, and Research Associate, Centre for Policy Studies in Higher Education and Training, at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada (now professor emeritus). From 2006 to 2017 he worked as a lawyer in private practice in Hannover, Germany, specializing on legal issues in education, and as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Oldenburg, Germany.

He was a Visiting Professor at public universities in Austria, France, Germany, Japan and China. He is a member of the Editorial Boards of the Journal for Adult and Continuing Education (SAGE), and of Frontiers of Education in China (Springer), and a Honorary Professor at the University of Glasgow, Scotland.

Research interests

For many years, Hans has specifically studied and explored different themes of reforms in Higher Education. Starting in 2003, he has organized, in close collaboration with colleagues in other countries, an annual series of International Workshops on Higher Education Reform. Sixteen of such workshops have taken place in eight different countries, five in Europe, four in Asia and seven in North America. A seventeenth was scheduled to take place at Glasgow University in 2020 - which had to be postponed because of the COVID epidemic.
