Update of the work
Report at BFUG Meeting 50 in Amsterdam, March 2016
Nota: will be updated for all BFUG meetings
Source: BFUG Meeting 50 Amsterdam March 2016 - Work progress AG Dealing with Non-Implementation
AG3 held its first meeting in Brussels on 14 January 2016. The meeting focused on two main areas of activity, reflected in the two working papers produced for BFUG 1/2016 (cf. bellow): Identifying a limited number of measurable commitments that form the foundation of the EHEA; and plan for our work in the period until the next ministerial meeting in Paris 2018.
Both documents were drafted on behalf of AG3 by a drafting group consisting of the two co-chairs (Iceland and Lichtenstein) and representatives from ESU, EC, and EQAR.
Working paper I - EHEA Key commitments
This paper lines out three key commitments which all EHEA members need to fulfil. The document explains why these three key commitments are crucial for the success of the EHEA and why they must be implemented by all member states. This document is to be presented to the BFUG in Amsterdam on March 7/8 for discussion and adoption.
Working paper II - Procedure for work in the coming period; Cooperation with WG1 and WG2
This second document will also be presented to the BFUG in Amsterday in March. Its purpose is to outline the relationships between AG3, WG1 (Monitoring) and WG2 (Implementation) in the work on non-implementation both in the long and short term, and to outline the plan of work for AG3.
Report at BFUG Meeting 52 in Bratislava, December 2016
Working paper III - Cyclic procedure for dealing with non-implemenation
The cyclic reporting procedure is an eight-step repeating process which aims to improve the implementation of the three key commitments of the Bologna process, as agreed upon in the BFUG meeting in Amsterdam in March 2016. It works by a combination of peer-review and public reporting, with the main purpose of highlighting persistent problems of non-implementation and increasing expectations of full and correct implementation. It will be proposed to the BFUG from AG3 on Dealing with Non-Implementation at BFUG Meeting 52 in Bratislava, December 2016.
