The Lisbon Recognition Convention at 15: making faire recognition a reality (Council of Europe higher education series No. 19) (2014)

To mark the 15th anniversary of the convention, this book examines some of the challenges to the international recognition of qualifications.

The Lisbon Recognition Convention, developed by the Council of Europe and UNESCO, is the main international legal text on the international recognition of qualifications and has been ratified by more than 50 countries. Few Council of Europe conventions have achieved a greater number of ratifications, and the political importance of the Lisbon Recognition Convention is very considerable. The recognition of qualifications is a necessary, if not sufficient, condition for both student and labour mobility.
