Abstract

The starting point for this book is the currently developing Bologna process, to which more than 40 governments have agreed, to set common European standards for higher education, and the EU's own strategy to exploit the knowledge economy more effectively. Both have target dates of 2010." "Anne Corbett sets out to explore the dynamics of these major European initiatives. She aims to provide a better understanding of earlier European initiatives from the European University (1955) to the Erasmus programme (1987) and to show why, and to what extent, the Bologna process builds on earlier developments. A second and analytic aim is to show how and why certain individuals, who are an integral part of the policy process, have to be part of the explanation of how and why policy develops in the EU - and elsewhere
