The Bologna and ASEM Education Processes: Comparing Governance Models and Outcomes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The Bologna Process (BP) and the ASEM Education Process (AEP) have been recognised as outstanding examples of regional and inter-regional higher education projects. Despite their different histories, governance structures and trajectories of development, today each process brings together some 50 countries and a dozen of international organisations in a sectoral space that shapes the global higher education landscape. This article reviews and explains the governance models and outcomes of regional higher education cooperation by analysing the causes of major differences and similarities of the two processes. By comparing some key features, this contribution aims at enhancing the understanding of the two large-scale regional projects and improving the collaborative practices in the future.
