EUA webinar series - Toward Tirana 2024, the Bologna Process and developments in the EHEA (VI)

The sixth webinar of the EUA series "Toward Tirana 2024, the Bologna Process and developments in the EHEA" discussed the current state of the social dimension in higher education, contrasting institutional perspectives with European policies. This event took place on 14 May 2024, from 14.00 to 15.00 CEST.

The Social Dimension has been extensively explored under the recent cycles of the Bologna Follow-up Group (BFUG) thanks to the work of the Social Dimension Working Group. With the 2020 Rome Communiqué, EHEA ministers adopted the Principles and Guidelines to Strengthen the Social Dimension of Higher Education in the EHEA, and expressed their commitment to implementing these in their respective systems.

This webinar took a step back from the BFUG discussions and delved into the experiences and historical context of the social dimension at two higher education institutions and one European Universities alliance. Speakers highlighted the rationale and motivations of various inclusive practices implemented at their institutions, and discussed how they are rooted in institutional strategies.

Finally, the event reflected on the relevance and applicability of the current initiatives on the social dimension coming from the BFUG.
