Author(s)Sjur Bergan
The presentation will examine the origins, development and characteristics of the Bologna Process. It will look at the conditions in which the Bologna Process came about and consider the factors that led to 46 European countries agreeing the main features of their higher education reform and then implementing them at national level. It will also look at the different stakeholders involved in the Process, in particular governments, higher education institutions and students, but also international organizations.
The presentation will also seek to examine how “Bologna policies” have evolved since 1999 and also consider some possible issues for the European Higher Education Area beyond 2010.
Finally, the presentation will look at the extent to which the Bologna Process might serve as a model for cooperation on higher education reform in other regions of the world.
