They xxxviii Introduction have been predictable because they have been planned, and the overall design of the plan has not changed throughout this period, or at least not until recently. They have been special in part because the plan was a continental one, supposed to involve countries that are very different in so many ways (history and traditions, political and economic systems). What is also special, beyond the scope and the motivations of the plan and planning, are the ideas, objectives and means of these planned developments, which were original and innovative in many cases.
Internationalisation over the past forty years, since the start of the ﬁrst European programmes (following initiatives in some countries such as Sweden and Germany), has moved from a reactive to a pro-active strategic issue, from added value to mainstream, although in many cases still more in intention and discourse than in practice. It also has seen its focus, scope and content evolve substantially. Increasing competition in higher education, the commercialisation and the increased cross-border delivery of higher education have challenged the value traditionally attached to cooperation in the form of exchanges and partnerships.
These concerns are expressed throughout this volume, which is composed of nine thematic sections. Beyond the xxxv xxxvi Introduction inquiry into important thematic aspects of the recent evolutions in higher education in Europe, could one also try to identify some fundamental, overarching factors that are changing (or perhaps have changed already), to understand where we are at present? Such “fundamental factors” may, in turn, represent important parameters for a discussion about the future. The Bologna Researchers’ Conference was purposefully organised just a few months ahead of an important gathering of the ministers responsible for higher education of the 47 countries of the European Higher Education Area, to be held in Yerevan, Armenia, in May 2015.
