(June 2005) Reinalda, B. and Kulesza, E. - This book is a thorough account of the dense network of international organizations and epistemic communities involved in the reform of European higher education. The authors review each intergovernmental and non-governmental organization participating in the genesis of the Bologna Process, assessing the originality of each organization’s own contribution and pointing out their growing concerns for quality assessment and professionalization at a transnational level.
The Bologna Process is placed in a global context by discussing international organizations active in the field and the issue of trade in educational services. It also compares with similar developments in Asia. The basic texts that help to understand these developments are included in the book. ‘There has been surprisingly little systematic research on the emerging European Higher Education Area. This book fills the gap.’The Bologna Process - Harmonizing Europe's Higher Education
