The official launch of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) in 2010, by ministers responsible for higher education in 47 European countries, raised public expectations and prompted a series of questions, especially from the wider public and the specialised press, regarding the impacts and future relevance of the Bologna Process. This article starts with an overview of how the process is seen from a variety of disciplinary views. It then provides a critical reflection on the evolution of the Bologna Process, from the point of view of what is largely deemed by the EHEA policy and practice community as achievements and challenges. The final aim of the article is to provide a possible answer to the question of whether the launch of the European Higher Education Area and the political call for its consolidation are mainly about realising the existing Bologna Process objectives or whether the newly established EHEA is increasingly seen as a political forum for European policy cooperation in higher education, which would impose some minimum requirements on the members, but also increasingly include ‘non-traditional’ topics for the Bologna Process, such as governance, funding etc. The political discourse in the latest EHEA Bucharest Communiqué is finally analysed in order to support this main question.

The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg are well-known cases of consensus politics. Traditionally, decision-making in the Low Countries has been characterized by broad involvement, power sharing and making compromises. These countries were also founding member states of the European Union (EU) and its predecessors. However, the relationship between European integration and the tradition of domestic consensus politics remains unclear. In order to explore this relationship this paper presents the conceptual framework and a short summary of the recently published book European Integration and Consensus Politics in the Low Countries (edited by Hans Vollaard, Jan Beyers and Patrick Dumont; Routledge). The authors discuss how consensus politics would shape the impact of European integration. They also analyse whether European integration may undermine the fundamental characteristics of consensus politics in the Low Countries. Drawing on consociationalism and Europeanization research, they provide a comprehensive overview of Europeanization in the three Low Countries as well as a better understanding of the varieties of consensus politics across and within these countries. In doing this they refer to a wide range of in-depth studies on a variety of political actors such as governments, parliaments, political parties, courts, ministries and interest groups as well as key policy issues such as the ratification of EU treaties and migration policy. Their most important observation is that European integration has changed the substance of consensus politics in some policy-areas, but barely the domestic political practice itself. [less ▲]

As the main initiatives in economic and regional policy in Greece focuses on creating favourable conditions for general economic growth and innovation rather than regional redistribution and cohesion, the future of the peripheral areas is largely a local concern and to an increasingly degree depending upon European co-operation and initiatives.

This paper focuses on the important role of the European Investment Bank (EIB) in the European Union’s promotion of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). We first demonstrate the relative importance of the EIB in relation to the European Commission on the promotion of PPPs. We then argue that the activism of the EIB on PPPs can be explained in terms of the bank’s operation as a policy entrepreneur. The paper further explains that the entrepreneurial role of the EIB with regard to PPPs relied massively on the presence of a small number of, principally British, ‘norm entrepreneurs’ who actively promoted the PPP concept and the specific norms that supported it within the EIB. While there are indications that the EIB operated as a rational actor in its promotion of PPPs, we argue that ideas ultimately drove the pro-PPP activism of both individual EIB officials and the institution collectively.

The European Union in its current state of economic crisis and stagnating growth is looking for ways to increase economic production in order to save itself from further decline. One particular strategy that has been promoted in this regard is to create a common framework for intellectual property rights that can position the EU in competition with other important markets in the world. With Art 118 TFEU the Lisbon Treaty has given a (powerful?) tool in the hands of the European legislator, which was promptly used to advance the negotiations for a European patent, discussions that had been on and off for some decades already. It is not clear yet, whether a European patent as currently imagined, in particular by the Council after the recent negotiations, will stand scrutiny by the CJEU. This paper will take the lessons learnt from the European patent in so far and project them on another very important field of intellectual property: the protection of copyright works in the European Common Market. Similar issues, such as jurisdictional quarrels between the CJEU, national courts and potentially specialized supra- or international courts arise, as well as issues of parallel existence of intellectual property titles with the same scope of application. Whether the EU will be successful in unitizing its intellectual property system will be decisive for its competitiveness in the global market and for its economic future in general. The paper will explore options for improvement in this process. [less ▲]

Merger and Acquisitions (M&As) have been an important tool for reorganizing the European market since the establishment of European Economic and Monetary Union. This article suggests that European integration helped and encouraged European firms to source technology across national borders in Europe, establishing European innovative firms. The figures confirm that, once barriers impeding the free movement of capital, goods and labour had fallen, European firms used M&As intensively to enter foreign European markets. Enhancing technology competencies is found to be one of the main motives for cross-border acquisitions in the 1990s but is not a factor in domestic acquisitions over the same period. [less ▲]

Dr Paravantes' presentation, " European Migrations post-WWII: Past, Present and Future, " will discuss the history of migrations and migration/refugee policy within the EU, from the beginning of the integration process and the formation of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) until the present. The talk will focus on earlier migrations within Western Europe, the rules established to regulate internal and external migration, and the steps which the various iterations of the European Union and its individual members took to deal with them. The overarching objective of this presentation is to place current events, and reactions to them, into the context of European integration and to examine misconceptions about migration policy and borders in the EU.
