Communiqué and Declaration:

1. Sorbonne Declaration 1998
The European process has very recently moved some extremely important steps ahead. Relevant as they are, they should not make one forget that Europe is not only that of the Euro, of the banks and the economy: it must be a Europe of knowledge as well. We must strengthen and build upon the intellectual, cultural, social and technical dimensions of our continent. These have to a large extent been shaped by its universities, which continue to play a pivotal role for their development.

erevanskoe kommunitiWe,  the  Ministers,  meeting  in  Yerevan  on  14-15  May  2015,  are  proud  to  recognize  that  the vision  which  inspired  our  predecessors  in  Bologna  has  given  rise  to  the  European  Higher Education  Area  (EHEA),  where  47  countries  with  different  political,  cultural  and  academic traditions  cooperate  on  the  basis  of  open  dialogue,  shared  goals  and  common  commitments. Together we are engaged in a process of voluntary convergence and coordinated reform of our higher education systems. This is based on public responsibility for higher education, academic freedom,  institutional  autonomy,  and  commitment  to  integrity.  It  relies  on  strong  public funding,  and  is  implemented  through  a  common  degree  structure,  a  shared  understanding  of principles and processes for quality assurance and recognition, and a number of common tools.
