EU opinion & policy debates - across languages |

ESU has been continuing its move eastwards with a visit to the Central Asian country of Kazakhstan in early February by Vice-Chair, Anita Liice. Organised by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan in co-operation with the Council of Europe and the Magna Carta Observatory, the event was a Bologna Seminar in response to Kazakh requests for assistance to join the Process. Such is the level of enthusiasm that even without being an official part of the Process, the country has taken major steps towards implementation of the Bologna reforms: the 3 tier higher education structure is in place, along with the credit system, while a quality assurance system is also in development. The expertise of ESU and its partners is therefore much sought-after in order for the country to learn more and take the next steps towards joining Bologna officially.
