Two decades of reform in higher education in Europe: 1980 onwards
Eurydice studies - Study
The aim of this study is to examine reforms in the higher education sector in the fifteen European Union Member States and the three EFTA/EEA countries between 1980 and 1998 and to identify the main trends together with the convergences and divergences between the different countries. This study of the European Union and EFTA/EEA countries therefore represents a unique opportunity to investigate the context for, and the direction of, reforms in higher education in Europe during the 1980s and 1990s. It examines and compares the nature and timing of reforms in the different countries during a... period of considerable economic, political and social change and increasing internationalisation.
