Abstract

Universities UK has long been accused of not fighting strongly enough for the interests of universities. Beset by internal differences and having to please all factions, it has rather let the so-called university mission groups – not least the Russell Group – lobby loudly instead. Yet when it does put its head above the parapet, as it has with a forceful campaign for Britain to remain in the European Union ahead of an upcoming referendum on membership, it gets its head shot off.
