Student Participation in Governance in Higher Education



As a part of the preparation for its Bologna seminar on student participation in higher education, the Norwegian Ministry of Education, Research and Church Affairs commissioned a report from the Council of Europe to survey the state of affairs with regard to formal provision for student participation as well as actual practice. This survey was conducted by Annika Persson, mainly during her period as a trainee at the Council’s Higher Education and Research Division in fall 2002, with some support from Per Nyborg as Chair of the Council’s Higher Education and Research Committee (CDESR) and Sjur Bergan, Head of the Division for Higher Education and Research.
