Council of Europe Conventions and Recommendations in Higher Education and Research

Conventions

Several documents have been adopted by different Council of Europe structures to provide a solid foundation for the activities in the field of higher education and research.

Conventions are legal documents, which are binding for every member state that has ratified them.

 

Recommendations

Council of Europe structures (in this case, the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly) can also issue recommendations. These are not legally-binding documents but they nevertheless represent important standard setting documents. In addition to this, recommendations or codes of good practice in various fields can be also adopted by some other structures (i.e. Lisbon Recognition Convention Committee etc.)
