Universities and the Europe of Knowledge – 50 years of history

This new publication written by Anne Corbett - Universities and the Europe of Knowledge - Ideas, Institutions and Policy Entrepreneurship in European Union Higher Education 1955-2005 - is a story of the European Community over 50 years, seen from the perspective of a developing European higher education policy.

The book provides a wide background narrative to current strategic efforts to develop the Europe of Knowledge, as well as to the Bologna Process. Its analytic interest in ideas and individual 'policy entrepreneurs' underpins the story and advances understanding of the EU policy process and of the phenomenon of policy entrepreneurship.
