Among the most signicant drivers of the reconguration of worldwide higher education systems are a variety of processes that have been categorized under the broad rubric of privatization. Within the realm of higher education, privatization has neither an unequivocal denition nor absolute and delimited characteristics. Its description and analysis entail multiple dynamics, with considerable complexity, particularly when placed within temporal and spatial frameworks (Dolenec, 2006; Geiger, 1988; Slaughter & Leslie, 1997). Mexico serves as a useful case for the study of privatization in higher education. is chapter looks at Mexico’s transformation from an eminently public system to an increasingly private one. In this chapter, we seek to understand a number of diverse strategies that have driven privatization of higher education in Mexico and to place those strategies in a global context.
