Handbook of European Associations in Higher Education
2000, paperback, 184 pages
Over the past 15 years, European cooperation in higher education has increased dramatically. In the same period, a large number of academic associations have come into being. A few insiders are familiar with their names, but hardly anyone knows what they actually do. What is their history? What are their aims, their main activities, their publications and their most noteworthy projects? How are they governed? This publication answers these and many other related questions. It attempts to shed light on the „inner workings“ of the 37 most important higher academic networks in Europe in the form of standardised portraits. The book also contains short profiles of important higher education associations from outside Europe, as well as a „postscript & analysis“ containing a short typology and history of European networks in the tertiary sector.
