  • Students and the Future of the European Higher Education Area

    Koen Geven, Stef Beek

    This article seeks to address the challenges Europe faces and how these can affect daily student life. Almost ten years after the start of the Bologna process, society, higher education and students have changed, and so have the problems which need addressing. The article pleads for an international agenda which should become a priority for national ministers and trickle down into the public debate concerning higher education. The authors believe in a rekindling of the spirit of Bologna, adapted to the needs of our time. With the necessary political leadership, we can collectively ensure higher education takes the lead in transforming our societies.

  • Bologna After 2010

    Sir Roderick Floud

    Much has been achieved through the Bologna process since 1999, but the context within which higher education operates across Europe has also changed fundamentally. Structures, funding, relationships with other parts of the world and the expectations which society has of higher education and research are the key factors which will determine the future of Bologna. What will the European Higher Education Area look like in 2020? This article examines factors linked to demography, gender, funding, lifelong learning and research, as well as the structure of university systems and the role of the university in the future. Each of these will shape the systems of each country and of the EHEA as a whole.

  • Implementing Bologna: Lessons Learned and Ongoing Challenges for post 2010

    Lesley Wilson

    The purpose of this article is to draw out lessons learned from the reforms of the last decade, and to identify ‘unfinished business’ and further issues to be addressed in the next phase of this major European higher education reform process. The article is based on seven case studies (published in the EUA Bologna Handbook) from universities across Europe, each of which analyses elements of the implementation of Bologna over the last decade in specific institutional and national contexts. The article also draws on the results of a survey carried out by the European University Association among its 34 national Rectors’ Conference members in early 2008. The intention is to contribute, from a university perspective, to discussions currently taking place on the future of the Bologna process after 2010.

  • Post-2010: Building a Higher Education and Research Area, but for what Sort of Europe?

    Eric Froment

    This article looks at the parallel development since 1999 of the European Higher Education Area, the European Research Area and the Lisbon strategy, and analyses some of the challenges which have emerged in bringing these different processes together in a coherent way. In the changed political and economic context of 2009, the article outlines different political choices which currently face Europe in its strategic development, and the potential role of higher education institutions in these.

  • Bologna in a Global Context: Future Challenges and Opportunities for the European Higher Education Area

    Brenda Gourley

    This article is an edited version of the speech delivered by the author to the Bologna Ministerial Conference in London on 17 May 2007. The article reviews the trends sweeping higher education, describes briefly the current state of play in European higher education, and places this in the context of the social trends that technology has unleashed. These social trends are not only changing the way in which the world does business but indeed changing the way in which universities will have to discharge their main functions. The article ends with suggestions of some areas for policy intervention – as well as areas for universities themselves to focus on – in the ongoing implementation of the European Higher Education Area.
