European Higher Educatin Policy and the Social Dimension

The Bologna Process has significantly shaped recent higher education policies across Europe, but the area of the social dimension has so far been neglected. Drawing on a cross-country case study (Finland, Germany and Turkey), this book examines the major Bologna reforms, in particular the social dimension, and whether this aspect has successfully been incorporated into policy. Discussing key themes, actors, goals, policies and agendas and setting out recommendations, this book examines the social dimension as a component of the Bologna Process.
