The Equity Policy Map

The Global Equity Policy Map represents a first attempt to build an international database on national equity policies in higher education. The first report looking at these policies “All around the world – Higher education equity policies across the globe” can be accessed below. The information on each country was obtained by consulting official websites, official documents, academic publications and the advice of government officials or academics.  All errors of interpretation of analysis remain, however, the responsibility of the research team.  We want to continue to update the map and invite you therefore to contact us at to complete the templates on existing countries or add information on new countries.


You can access the full report, “All around the world: Higher education policies across the globe” by clicking on the image to the right. The report was written by Jamil Salmi and was launched on the first World Access to Higher Education Day in 2018. It was supported by the Lumina Foundation, an independent, private foundation in Indianapolis that is committed to making opportunities for learning beyond high school available to all.
